“Altered Metal” For Jewelry Making

Class Date: Sunday, July 30, 11:30AM-2:30PM

In this wonderful technique class, you’ll learn how to create your own metal components to use for earrings, necklaces, or bracelets. All supplies and tools to use are included in the price of class. Students will emboss pewter, copper, and/or brass metal blanks using Sizzix© embossing die plates and a Bigkick hand operated press, designed for Vintaj brand metal blanks. It is all very fun! After your metal is embossed, you can leave it natural or paint it with a choice of several patina colors to mix and blend. Students will have a choice of embossing die plate designs to use and decide where on the 2”×2” die design they want their metal embossed. Several techniques and ideas will be shared in class. Beads and findings will be on hand to make a couple pair of earrings, (similar sell for $30 to $45 each in my shop!). Several styles and sizes available. Practical color theory along with visual design balance and assembly integrity are part of all Peggy’s classes. You’ll learn how to trust your style instinct and that anything goes!

This class is one, 3 hour session. Skill Level: All, ages 15 and up. Cost: $55. Instructor will assist students in making earrings and design. Additional metal blanks will be available for purchase to emboss and patina as class time permits. Instructor, Peggy Forrester is a Vintaj distributor and students may purchase or order Vintaj supplies at the Nagare Boutique shop in CRAFTED. Please pre-register to reserve your seat.
