Additional Information
Description:
Learn to use wire weaving techniques to capture smaller faceted stones. Even though this pendant is small you will be amazed by the time it takes to construct and build this beautiful piece. While in class we will be using a 12 mm Swarovski rivoli crystal as the focal stone, I have used this design with faceted stones in all different sizes and shapes.
Students will Learn:
You will learn how to use the modified Soumak weave to create a solid structure as we build multiple layers to surround the faceted stone. We will also dive into the basics of symmetry and elevating your workmanship so that there aren’t any tool marks.
