This class will teach you a fun, fast way to bring vibrant color to your jewelry. Learn how to choose your supplies, prepare your metal, create your designs, and fire multiple layers of glass enamel with a torch. Make several multiple charms that can be used as pendants or earrings, during class, and then with this technique, you can easily do more at home. Students will also learn how to draw designs in enamel with the sgraffito technique and how to use stencils, rubber stamps and decals to enahance their designs.

Why take this class?
Love color? Metal is beautiful but the palette is limited to silver, gold, copper, etc. Enameling opens a world of color and design: draw with glass on your metal. Also, since affordable copper can be used as a base under opaque enamels, you don't have the expense of precious metals, like silver. Enamel jewelry is a great way to express your unique designs. Combine it with basic jewelry skills, like sawing, filing and setting to make your own shapes, and to set your designs into beautiful frames.
