Metal Clay Hoop Earrings

Course Description

About this course

Learn to make unique hoop earrings using metal clay! Applying hollow form metal clay fabrication techniques allows for students to create larger yet lightweight statement pieces. In class, students will make earrings, but this technique can be applied to other metal clay forms as well. Finish the day with a new pair of earrings to wear home and the skills necessary to apply these concepts in future work. Please note that experience is necessary for this workshop. Students must be comfortable working with metal clay.
