Torch Firing Enamels with Decals Workshop

Saturday, March 3rd, 2018 from 10 am to 6 pm

Enameling is a jewelry technique that involves fusing powdered glass onto a metal surface. Adding color through enameling can further elevate the look of jewelry by making it more eye catching! One can push their enameling skills and jewelry work even farther by adding graphic surface patterns with ceramic decals. Any image can be custom made through a specialized printing house that implements this unique ceramic printing process. If you are looking for a new way to add color to your jewelry, than this can be your answer!

In this workshop, demonstrations will be given on how to use a torch to enamel on copper and silver sheet metal. In addition, demonstrations will be given on how to fuse ceramic decals onto your torch fired enameled pieces.

Each student will leave the workshop having made a pair of enameled earrings and a pendant!

All levels of experience are welcome.

There will be a 30 minute break for lunch. Bring your own sack lunch or grab lunch in the area.
