Silver Clay: Lentil wish bracelet
Time & Location
About the Event
Imagine learning a new skill in the splendour of an 18th century stately home. Why imagine while you could come and join me for an introductory silver clay class.
In this three hour taster session is suitable for beginners. You will create your very own unique lentil bead wish bracelet in genuine 99.9% silver (more precious than standard Stirling silver).
Attendees will be able to write their one word wish into the centre of the bead before firing. They will also learn how to create a closed loop, attache wire and clasps.
Silver clay is a magical material which enables individuals to create their own gorgeous piece of jewellery without having to use silver smithing techniques. The clay is created using recycled silver particles which are reformed into a clay using non toxic binder and water. Once you have learned the techniques it is so easy to make at home with easy to obtain tools.
You will learn about rolling the clay, texturing, moulding/forming, cutting, assembling, setting a stone, firing and polishing (and if adventurous enough, perhaps a bit of patina). You will find the class to be enjoyable, fun, easy and relaxing.
You will go home with your own brand new shining, genuine silver, bracelet - so you can wear it immediately, enabling you to amaze your family and friends.
