Learn how to make sterling-silver jewelry without hammering or soldering in this workshop with jewelry artist, Luiza Grandchamp. Using silver metal clay, a clay-like material made of fine particles of sterling silver, water, and a nontoxic binder, participants will mold, texture, and layer the material to make a pendant using simple tools. Students will be provided with a few, colorful cubic-zirconia stones to make their pieces glitz. The work will then be dried and fired using a torch to burn away the binder and leave a unique object that is 96% pure silver. The finished, torch-fired silver pendants will be polished and hung on a sterling-silver chain.

Note: The workshop takes place in person and inside the HCCC building. Space is limited to a maximum of 12 participants.
