Students will learn to make a double sided bezel by using simple hardware soldering techniques. They will create very unique flower beads and leaf dangles using shrink plastic that they will hand-colored using colored pencils and sift-shading techniques. They hand-form the shrink plastic as well as using the mold that Julie has created for this purpose. These creations will all come together to create a draped flowing pendant that utilizes cold-connection techniques.

The necklace is made of hand-wrapped and hammered links. Beads will also be interspersed among the different styles of links.
