ONSITE: Creating Movement in Metal Clay: Make a Swing Bail

Explore how to make use of metal clay's unique properties to bring movement into your jewelry pieces. One of the most important aspects of metal clay is that if parts aren't attached with moisture when it's greenware, it won't be attached after it's fired. You can make that principle work in your favor. In this weekend workshop you'll make a moveable bail, a component used to attach a pendant or stone, set a stone, and go home with a piece that's ready to wear.

Special Notes
