Students will learn to work with shrink plastic in a new and unique way, forming it to make a flower pocket, flower bead caps, and draping hand formed leaves. All will be colored using colored pencils in soft shading technique. Brass sheet metal is cut out, hand hammered and distressed and will be incorporated in the design. Cold-connection techniques will be taught. The necklace is made of hand-wrapped and hammered links. Beads will also be interspersed among the different styles of links.

Students may want to bring their own set of jewelry pliers: chain-nose, round-nose and wire clipper and scissors if they are partial to using their own tools.
