Maybe you’re like me and love jewelry with surprising textures and patterns. If so, you will enjoy this pendant class where you will transform smooth sterling silver sheet metal into a wonderful and unexpected dimensional work of art using the flame from a small butane torch. When you have achieved the look you like, choose a stone that complements the pendant. You’ll create a bezel from fine silver or sterling silver bezel wire, solder it to the pendant and set the stone as th finishing touch. Soldering will be done with a small torch known in cooking circles as a crème brulee torch.
Students must tie back long hair, wear closed toe shoes, and avoid wearing loose flowing clothi
