Enhanced Twisted Sistah On-Line Workshop
My very first on-line workshop will be available September 10, 2012 through Creative Workshops. This workshop will be open-ended and on-going, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Many of you have requested that I offer this class on line. This workshop will be an enhanced version of the Twisted Sistah Choker class I have taught at various national art retreats. Over 20 techniques will be featured in this workshop including but not limited to: cutting and filing metal; the basics of soldering with a micro butane torch; soldering handmade bezels; all about resins; free-form wire work; weaving with beads, patinas, soldering chain links and designing closures.
I hope you will join me! Stay tuned for all of the particulars as the time approaches. Creative Workshops will be hosting my workshop and handling all the details.
DVD's are also available in my Etsy store.
Heart to Heart Tutorial
I have had so many requests to teach my process and techniques in creating these little gems and have the pleasure of offering you my very first tutorial as a result. This tutorial is in a PDF format and includes 35 pages full of detailed step-out photos (81 in all), step-by-step instructions for etching with ferric chloride, the nuances of working with a micro-butane torch, soldering, cutting and shaping sheet metal, the wonder of patina, cold connections, working with antique rhinestone pieces, jeweler's grade epoxies and wire wrapping. I also share with you imperative safety tips, resources and my favorite tools for the job.
See my Etsy store for all of the details and purchasing.
I also have kits to accompany the tutorial just waiting for you there as well.
