Make a splash with a stunning statement necklace made completely by hand! We will explore making one-of-a-kind sterling silver pendants featuring colorful cabochon stones, which hang from gorgeous handmade chains. We will use silver, copper and bronze wire to form loops and links, which then can be combined in infinite variations for fun metal chains. To pull your unique necklace together, we will also learn how to make a variety of toggle and hook clasps. You’ll come away from class with at least two completely original finished necklaces, and the skills to make many more!
