Description: In this beginners class for jewelry making we will explore the realm of ceramic adornment…from beads, pendant and charms to more elaborate bangles and headpieces. We will make everything in ceramic then explore possible and ideal assemblage particular to each unique piece. This is is an opportunity to explore your personal style as well as develop intricate techniques with clay to develop your very own jewelry collection.
As each student will be responsible for supplying their own assemblage material, we encourage recycling any scrap strings, fabric, leather, or wires lying around as we will explore experimental ways to couple materials with ceramic accouterments to make truly inspired collections.
