Additional Information
Description:
Repurpose a nearly 100 year old silver-plated fork or spoon into a pendant with ornate fine-silver wire loops that frame a genuine gemstone and pearl. Learn how to easily cut and perforate silver-plated cutlery, and get great tips on how to stamp on the handles. This class is all about choice -- you can choose a fork or spoon, gemstone, and your word to stamp. Following this class, be prepared to fully anticipate looking forward to estate sales and auctions for silver-plated fork and spoon sets, as this is a highly addictive form of art.
