Native American Style Jewelry Weekend
This is a 2 day class set up to explore making jewelry with the Native American flare: from stamps to shot plates to twisted wire serrated bezels around stones for a pendant or ring variation. Both beginners to advanced students will enjoy the huge variety of styles to accent your own amazing creations. We will forge ahead to make either a ring or a pendant (maybe both if your experienced) using a cabochon stone set in a bezel For time purposes will use premade bezels, so that we can spend time exploring all the other processes that fall under the Native American style. Base metals are included, however i highly recommend sterling silver and I will have sterling silver on hand for sale as well as turquoise and other stones. You are free to bring your own silver or stones if you wish please inquire with Ria about details that will work best for metal thickness and stone sizes. About a week before the class, Ria will email everyone some design ideas so that you can think about what you can create, a lot of this class focused on how to design and be flexible to change your design while in the process.
