Learn the art of copper enameling while you make your own unique bird necklace. We will cover basic sifting techniques with access to a large selection of colors. You will be firing your pieces in a 1500 degree kiln to allow the powdered glass enamel to fuse to the copper surface. You will have two surfaces to get creative with so you have a reversible necklace.
Choose one side to apply and fuse a permanent black bird decal. We have a varierty of different bird decals to choose from.
You will finish the necklace off with a sterling silver chain and have a new handmade necklace to wear home!
All materials and tools will be provided.
