Glass Fusing Class
Hot, Hot, Hot.
you always seen the beautiful Dicroic glass cabochons and wondered how
they were made? Have you looked at them and imagined a piece that you had
created yourself? Now you can create it yourself. Judy will be teaching
You will learn things like COE and why it is
important to you when working with glass, how to cut glass properly, what
it takes to make a cabochon or glass stones for earrings, grinding the edges of your piece to make it more
uniform and much more. There will be hand outs so you don’t have to
remember all of these things.
This class will be in
two parts and you must be able to attend both parts in order to complete
the class. It will be held on two consecutive Saturdays, the first to
cut, design, lay out, and get your pieces ready for the kiln. This will
be a 3 to 4 hour class. We will put
the pieces into the kiln and then the next Saturday, we will make them
into pieces of jewelry. This second class will be about 2 to 2 1/2 hours.
The cost for this
class is $145 and includes both days. All materials will be provided. If
someone wants to bring special glass, it MUST be approved by Judy in
advance due to comparability issues with the glass. A $50 deposit will hold your
spot for this class and the balance must be paid two weeks before the
class, so ample materials may be obtained.
This is going to be a
wonderful class that will open a new door into the art of using glass in
your design work that you have not touched upon before. We hope that you
can make it to this one as it will be exciting.
A Classic Heirloom
When you pass on something special to one of
your heirs, it is called an "heirloom". When that item is very
special - and valuable, it is called a classic heirloom. We sell
everything needed for you to create that piece of wearable art that you
can be proud to pass on to the next generation. This is why we
call our bead & jewelry shop "Heirloom Classics".
