Recycling old metals is a theme throughout all my classes this year. In this class we will be using found metals from beautiful old silver plated trays, with either copper or brass core. We will compliment them using copper sheet. You will create textures using hammers and metal stamps. All connections will be cold, using only rivets that you make yourself. You will be taught to make a hinge by just using metal shears, jewelers saw and Copper tubing! Using a jewelers saw, you will also set a druzy filled Geode slice on top of pendant leaving window to see intricate texture of silver platter. All combined, you will have created a one of a kind, movable work of art! This design has been created and will be taught exclusively at Great Bead Escape 2019.
