Mandala Pendant Class

Melissa Manley will be teaching a day workshop on how to make this pendant,
June 5th at Art Exposure in Hampstead, NC.

"Learn to use a jeweler's saw to create lacy, pierced designs in metal. We'll drill and cut our mandalas from copper. We will then enamel our mandalas with vitreous glass enamel powders. If you have sawing experience all the better! But if not I've had great success helping beginning folks learn to love this essential jeweler's tool. Join us as we get lost in the rhythm of sawing!"
The class is $85

Supply list:
*jeweler's saw and #3/0 blades
*a jeweler's bench pin-I prefer this one:

Optional items:
*small lithium battery powered hand drill if you have one and want to use your own.
Melissa will be bringing a drill.
*small drill bits if you want to use your own drill, but Melissa will bring some.
*thin work gloves if you like.

Melissa will bring lots of tools, copper for the pendant and enamels and her kiln.

So come join in the fun!
