Rosales

One day class - Intermediate

Pre-requisites You should be craw confident with building a cube on top of a cube to make the rope portion of this pendant.

Rosales combines craw and double craw in a beautiful and very wearable pendant. A frame is made with double craw corners in a larger size which beautifully frames an Anna Bronze floral in the center. A graceful V shape uses a split cube to elongate the frame and is terminated in an open double craw unit from which chain is suspended. Double craw units extend up the rope and a center clasp is made with magnet casing and a double craw center. The center clasp can be repeated to make one short and one longer clasp for wearing your pendant at different lengths. Four sets of magnets will be included to give you this option.

 

Double craw, split cube and magnet casings will be taught in class.

 

Kit will be mandatory and will come in three colors.

One day class - All Skill Levels

      

Pendants, Brooches, and Earrings

 

In this full-day class, students will start with drawing and shrinking several pieces of shrink plastic to go into their finished piece. We will be using alcohol inks, markers, and colored pencils as colorants. I will supply the shapes, molds, and heat guns as well as felt forms some beads and sequins, and pigments. If you want your own set of colored pencils and permanent markers, bring what you might have to increase your personal palette. In the second part of the day, we will be embellishing felt forms to include in our completed piece. I love embellishment as there are no rules or particular thread paths that need to be followed, I emphasize excellent craftsmanship and share tips and tricks throughout the day. If you already own wire cutters and pliers please bring them. I will have some to share.

 

Mandatory kit to include: Shrinkets for these two projects, felt, pigments, tools, beads and sequins, thread, needles. Just bring your bead mat and any extra beads to complete your palette! $45.00
