If you like multiple wire and cold connection techniques, playing with Ice Resin and personalization then you will love this class! We will create a Wire Nest focal with wire, molding compound, Ice Resin, and my images or yours. Using ThermaClear sheeting we will “blow” the trinket dome, set our layers of metal-Ice Resin pages and our dome to create a trinket dome connector. Next we will explore ways to make a nest connector component. We will set eyelets and create the rest of the necklace components with wire loops and beads. Finally we will add Vintaj® Patinas to coordinate with our images and then begin construction. It will be a jam packed day of constant exploration, creativity and design concepts.

Note: You will by making a sample wire and resin nest that will be set aside for later use at home. Pam will provide you with a pre-made nest blank to begin your project in class and will have lots of wings completed and dried to complete the necklace.

Materials fee includes: Ice Resin®, Parawire wire in 20 and 22 ga., ThermaClear sheeting, trade beads and seed beads, Vintaj® chain and findings. Silicone molding compound, and lots of images to use. Resin prep board. Written instructions with step-by-step photos/diagrams.

Level: Novice and above

Student Supply List:
Sharp scissors, pen-paper, and beading surface. Optional: personal items you might bring are your own images printed on cardstock or heavy paper, tiny items you might want to put into the Trinket Dome (2mm-6mm) or extra beads you might like to use.
