Enameled Jewelry as Personal Adornment
September 9 - September 10| $320
Welcome to an enameling with foils workshop, a technique which is quite popular and easily learned.
The W.W. Carpenter Enamel Foundation invites you to choose and create two different but equally exciting possibilities:
Instructor - Josy Trageser
Discover the use of transparent enamels and silver and gold foil in creating lapel pins as adornments, or if preferred, small flat or deep copper vessels.
Your own surprisingly elegant custom jewelry using silver foils in combination with opaque transparent enamels. Participants will have a choice of oval, round or triangular jewelry pins which consist of a copper base framed in a silver bezel frame with pin-backing. Items will be enameled, assembled and attached securely to clothing before leaving the workshop.
Firing and Finishing
Broaches, foils and enameling materials to be supplied by workshop. Application and firing of a base coats front and back. Addition of foils, hand cut or punched in decorative shapes with scissors orcommercial punches available during class. Repetition of steps with addition of layers of foils and transparents until personal satisfaction is achieved. Finishing by setting of copper in bezel and securing back support . Participants are encouraged to bring manicure scissors (curved blade) or small other type of scissors for cutting foil shapes.
If preferred, small copper bowls and dishes will also be available to decorate with foils using same techniques .
You will always remember the satisfying, creative times bringing forth these beautiful “Objets D’Art”.
