New Pieces, Student Projects and May Class Schedule.

This schedule took me a bit longer than anticipated to get together. But I am finally done with May’s schedule and have a good start on Junes. I am in talks with a couple of shops for June and as soon as those are firmed up, I will get the rest of that posted and begin on July. I am hoping to offer some enameling classes in July, so keep your eyes open for that.

I forgot to get a picture of the fold formed pendant for next weeks class, but I will have that up by the end of tomorrow. So check back if you want to see that picture.

We have been having fun in some of the classes here in the past couple of weeks and I thought I would share some of the student pieces that have been made.

1944

These were made during our tab setting class where students work with a jewelers saw. I love how differently everyone’s pieces turned out so differently.

1945

These are called turtle settings. They are soldered in the back. Again, so much fun to see the creativity of the students.

1946

This is another one of my pieces. I had something entirely different in the middle, but it just didn’t work out. The design was done with my new prismacolor pencils on acrylic. As soon as I get the center piece sealed with a layer of lacquer I will be posting this in my shops for sale. That will happen this next week.

1947

This is a fun little project. It is made with telescoping rivets. I will be teaching this one coming up in the next couple of weeks.

filigree

Last night I played in the studio with Riley. We made our own filigree wire by twisting two wires together and then running it through the rolling mill to flatten it. I hate that when the picture is larger than life, you can see every little flaw that you can’t see when it isn’t this large. HAHAHA

1949

This sweet ring is a new addition to my class schedule. They are spinner rings. They are so much fun to make and even more fun to wear. I love how comfortable this ring is.

1950

This particular pendant is a little over the top, but it is a solder free turtle setting. I will be teaching it this next week. Probably not quite so busy in the class, but the concept is still the same. It is a great unique setting for those not wanting to use solder or torches to create a setting.

And here is my schedule for May and part of June. I have not included any of the Open Studios or Day classes yet. So keep checking my schedule for any changes. As always, requests are welcome. To see class descriptions and pictures, please visit my website.
