CLASS DESCRIPTION In this workshop you will make a pendant (or, if you prefer, a pair of earrings) hand-decorated with silver strings and balls that can easily be shaped into an interesting "nest" design. Once you see the process you can arrange them in a different pattern if you choose. Either way, you will end up with a unique, reversible, piece of silver art jewelry.

PLEASE NOTE: Pieces will be fired after class, and available for pick-up at Artsmiths one week later.
