La Mer Charm Bracelet Class with COPPRClay - ESILL Class Oct 12, 19, 26 1-3pm

In this three session class we will explore using COPPRClay to make a Sea Creature inspired copper charm bracelet.  Students will make two sided charms with copper clay using special texture sheets of sea creatures.  The charms will be fired in our kiln, a special green patina added, and then they will be sealed to protect the color.  We will then attach the charms to a copper chain, adding a mixture of crystal and copper beads for a beautiful finished charm bracelet.  No prior experience is necessary.   We will make the components in the first two classes on October 12, 19, and assemble them in the final class on October 26.  Class time is from 1pm - 3pm.  Fee for ESILL Members is $22.00, Non Members $27.00.  Material Fee $40.00.
