Setting Glass Cabochons in Precious Metal Clay with Doris King


Wednesday, April 6, 2022 | 10am – 1pm

Wednesday April 13, 2022 | 10am – 3pm

Precious Metal Clay is pure silver or gold mixed with an organic non-toxic binder. The binder gives the metal the flexibility to be formed, molded, and textured.  It is then fired in a kiln where the organic binder burns off and the pure fine silver or gold design remains.

In this class, you’ll create a unique, textured pendant in Precious Metal Clay and learn to bezel-set a glass or stone cabochon.

Day 1: Demo, Intro to Precious Metal Clay. Students will make their pendant base, which will then be fired overnight.

Day 2: Students make a bezel to hold their cabochon and attach to the pendant base. These will be fired over the lunch break after which we will polish the piece and set the cabs.
