J-105: BEGINNER JEWELRY MAKING USING Silver PRECIOUS METAL CLAY
INSTRUCTOR: MAR JIMENEZ
• Saturdays by appointment, 6-hour session
TUITION: $160 (includes 15 grams of Silver Precious Metal Clay, enough to complete 1-2 projects, depending on the project chosen, and use of a Precious Metals Tool Kit).
In this two-session class students learn how to work with Precious Metal Clay, a fine, silver-infused compound clay that allows the student to mold, stamp, sculpt, and create their own silver jewelry designs. When using precious metal clay, the student is left with a pure .999 silver creation that can be tumbled, burnished, or you can add patina to get creative and beautiful effects. Familiarity with these materials can lead the student to silversmithing. Additional Precious Metal Clay and tool kits will be available for purchase. Customized courses and Open Studio work with the instructor is available by arrangement.
For every hour you spend past the scheduled time of this class to finish any pieces, you must pay an open studio fee of $17 an hour.
