In this unique workshop Kristina teams up with glass artist Márta Edõcs to teach students how to make Make one-of-a-kind jewelry by combining flameworked glass and silver metal clay. Kristina will teach flameworked beadmaking where she will explain and demonstrate a variety of techniques such as dots, precise patterning, clear casing, raking and feathering, and forming large shapes.
In the metal portion of the class, Márta will take students through the steps needed to create unique silver elements, findings, clasps, bails, and bezels. Márta will teach a variety of techniques such as carving, modeling, firing, sanding, and polishing.
In addition, both instructors will help students with any needed coldworking and final assembly of finished pieces. This is a great class for students to work on identifying and refining their own individual style of artwork.
Experience in small scale detailed work is an advantage but not necessary.
