I am so very thrilled to be part of Spellbound once again. To say this event is divine is quite the understatement. Each and every detail is filled with classic beauty. Shea and Debbie go above an beyond to create an event that is truly a destination of fun and delight. One could not forget to mention the Langham Hotel with its exqusite beauty and history it is the perfect venue for this amazing event.
Last year I taught one of favorite techniques - using flood soldering to simulate mercury glass. This year I take things up a notch with two new classes with projects that are exclusive to the Spellbound Event with my new line Rue Romantique and the new ICED Enamels by ICE Resin® - not only will everyone learn new and exciting techniques but each student will walk away with a completed piece to wear!
ICED Enamels, Silver Tattered Mica and ICE Resin® create the perfect centerpiece for an enameled heart (which we will create in class). All of these divine elements are nestled nicely within the confines of a Rue Romantique Victorian bezel that has been manipulated with a mandrel and hammered into a cuff. Stands of chain and beads complete this unique and stunning piece.
In class Kristen will walk you through the process of enameling charms, using ICED Enamels to create faux flood soldering, as well as shaping and hammering your bezels into cuffs. Wire wrapping as well as chain construction will also be covered. Everyone will leave class with a completed bracelet!
Supplies Provided: Kit includes everything you need, however if you would like to add your own elements please feel free to bring them with you to incorporate into your piece.
Basic three-piece jewelry tool set (wire cutters, flat nose and barrel nose).
“Rue Romantique” Enameled Necklace: Friday- 11:30am, Saturday 4:30pm
Layers of beauty abound in this charming necklace. From rhinestone filled Rue Romantique Bezels to ICED Enameled and blinged up charms, the temptations are endless. Pearls, crystals, charms and faceted beads create somewhat of a fairy tale that will surely attract attention while at the same time speak volumes of classic beauty.
In class Kristen will guide you through the process of using ICED Enamels as well as filling bezels with rhinestones and ICE Resin™. We will then move on to assembling our piece, which will include wire wrapping, creating eternity loops and altering silk ribbon.
Supplies Provided: Kit includes everything you need to create the project as shown. If you would like to add your own elements, please feel free to bring them with you to incorporate into your piece.
