Student Level:
All
Type of Workshop: Project oriented workshop

 

 

In this class I’ll show you how to create my whimsical filled wire forms. We’ll be making flowers and leaves, filling them with paper and adding a jewelry grade resin coating that’s durable and beautiful. I’ll show you my tips and tricks for using resin on paper in a wire form, as well as how to properly mix and use Ice Resin. These elements are the perfect addition to my Bloom bangles, as well as many other jewelry pieces.

This class is taught in conjunction with my “Bloom Bangles” class but can be taken independently.
