During this easy workshop we will make a fine silver leaf pendant, using Art Clay silver paste. What is silver clay: Art clay silver is made of pure metal powders mixed with non-toxic binders and water. When kiln fired, the binders burn away, leaving pure silver (99.9% silver). You will leave this workshop with a perfect replica of a real leaf in solid silver that you can wear. You can choose a leaf from the selection I provide from a variety of nearby plants or flower shop, or you can bring yours but please note that not every leaf is suitable for making this kind of silver pendant. Among the bests are ivy, rose leaves. Pls. contact me if you need more info about this. The leaf pendant is made using silver clay paste. You do not need any previous experience, I will guide you through the process from beginning to end. The workshop price includes all materials necessary to create one piece of a real fine silver pendant. All the necessary equipments are provided on the day as well as a thin braided or leather necklace of your choice. As we will fire your pendant during the class, at the end of the day you will go home with a beautiful piece of silver pendant hand made by you.
