You will make this all sterling silver and enamel pendant. We will start with a brief introduction of what enamel is and it's properties. Then it's time to get to "making". You will pack your silver mountain pendant using the wet packing technique. A variety of different tools will be used including small scoops, paint brushes and more. You will clean up any edges using just water and a paint brush. Next the piece is fired in the kiln. You will have the choice to load the piece yourself or have assistance with this. Your piece will take a few minutes to cool, so you can relax and check out the metal smithing space and/or gallery more closely. You will fill your piece once or twice more with enamel and fire again after each time. Now you can kick back and enjoy a local treat while I finish the last details to make your necklace a finished piece!
Il tuo host
I have been making jewelry for as long as I can remember, which is at least 33 years! I fell in love with enamel the very first time I experimented with it. So after completing a Jewelry Technician Course in San Francisco I opened my business, Bluebird Designs, featuring a happy and whimsical line of enamel jewelry. That was 9 years ago and I have been teaching workshops and sharing that love with others for 6 years now. In 2014 I relocated my business to Asheville's vibrant River Arts District. Come enjoy an enamel workshop with me and then explore the RAD area.

Dove ti troverai
Come make your pendant exactly where I create all my own pieces in my complete metal smithing studio in the River Arts District. This is where I fabricate all my enamel jewelry for my business, Bluebird Designs. Throughout the building and district there are many other open studios to explore before your workshop, as well as some exquisite food options. Oh and a few breweries as well;)
