Layered Colored Pencil Jewelry on Metal

with Mary Karg

at Wildacres August

Class Description

Using colored pencils, students will learn the process to apply and retain color on copper and brass. Emphasis will also be on forming and shaping metal to create multi-layered dimensional jewelry that is beautiful, interesting and unusual.

Students will begin with a blank canvas—copper sheet.  We will cut it, beat on it, roll and fold it and then color it up.  Each person will then design layered riveted jewelry.
Armed with these many techniques,  Students will come away with a solid foundation of jewelry engineering, cold connections as well as coloring metal. Suitable for all levels, previous metal experience helpful but  not necessary.
