Combine photography with torch fired enamels to create a keepsake pendant featuring a favorite pet, a vacation memory, a family photo or other images you’d like to experiment with! Use your own photo or drawing to create an artistic pendant using photo-decals and vitreous enamel on copper.
Learn how to sift powdered glass enamels onto copper, how to layer enamels, and how to use a small butane torch to fire the enamel onto a pendant. Students are given the option to experiment with different types of transparent colored enamel and will have a variety of decal images to choose from in addition to their own personal photos. Students may email the instructor up to 2 images to use in class; all images must be received at least 2 days before class. Email address will be provided after registering for the workshop.

Meet the Teacher
My work is a combination of Nature and Empowerment with an emphasis on recycled metals. Making jewelry has been my passion for over twenty years and like the Raven, I love mixing style with themes of playfulness and awareness. My work is a reminder of the strength, love and joy that is within every one of us. A great day for me is sitting at my bench and making something I am proud of that I hope will delight someone. I was able to go full time as a metalsmith almost a decade ago and know every day that I have the best job I could ask for. I am never bored, my mind constantly coming up with new things to try, new directions my work can take. I have been blessed to connect with people all over the world who collect my work. Whether personal empowerment with the Clamshell line, connecting with our environment through my Honey line or Kelp Line, or the bond between the animals we share our homes with, I strive to move the world in a more positive direction, which is all we can humbly ask for.
