"Fantasy eye" pendant - three days workshop in silver

It's a 3 days workshop packed with lots of different techniques, featuring an eye motif (hollow from the back), various, sculptural ornaments, which create a narrative context for the eye, and a bezel set stone (the shape of the stone is your choice).

The eye can be made into a dragon eye, as pictured, but also an eye of the ocean etc. - depending on your prefernce when comes to additional ornaments. Wonderful textures, interesting shapes, lots of tricks for creating secure openwork constructions in metal clay, semi hollow forms and working with wet coils - this is what this workshop is about. Every student will leave the workshop with their own, different „Fantasy eye”.

Main objectives:

- learn to make a metal clay, stylized eye (different types of irises and pupils will be shown)
- learn to create various organic looking textures on the coils, the eye and other elements
- learn to plan a nice, flowing design
- learn to make a secure openwork construction
- learn to make a bezel setting for the stone (the shape of the stone is your choice)
