Class #25

Crystal Clay Fun

Amanda Cosgrove Paffrath

July 12 | 9 - 4

Learn to work with this fun clay material as you create your own mosaic style jewelry components. Add sparking crystals, metal components, little seed beads, or chain to add color and texture to your designs. We will share all of our tips and tricks for working with this wonderful material. Basic jewelry making skills will be covered to turn these components into wearable art. A supply fee will cover everything you will need to make four different components. Additional supplies will be available for purchase from the instructor. Class will end with time to admire each other’s work and learn about other artists around the country using this medium.
