This is an action packed full day of creating your personal PMC animal totem pendant. Over the past few years I have dabbled with layering and setting cutout PMC shapes into PMC backgrounds. This dabbling hit a huge breakthrough when I realized that adding broom-casting pieces to the background that gave the piece dimension and life. My wolf was howling at a tube set Citrine in what appeared to be a desert landscape & my bear was wandering through the woods as again, a Citrine, sun shone down. All each participant needs to bring to class is a mini animal cookie cutter of your favorite creature that speaks to your soul. Spend the day with me and create your totem .

Each Participant is supplied with a fully equipped work station.

Over the past few years I have been delving into putting my personal take on jewelry I
have discovered in art history and in museums. So, today, take a forging and texturing
journey with me and create this amazing gate latch bangle. We will texture the heavy
gauge base then create the hook and loop. Once those tasks are completed we will rivet
pattern wire to the base and flair out the edges to give the base dimension. Lastly we will
hand create the hand forged tension gate latch.

Each participant is supplied with a fully equipped work station. Just show up, there is no need to bring anything. I have got you covered.

My love affair with 8 fine silver gauge has culminated with this amazing bangle that
features an eight gauge textured and forged support that is riveted onto a base of 20 gauge
fine silver sheet. After soldering a round tube bezel setting cup onto the base we will
forge the latch hook from 8 gauge round wire. Each bangle will be fit to size and after
tumble and patina we will set a AAA non-heat treated 6mm round faceted Citrine.

Anne started her creative career over 25 years ago as a professional lighting designer. Looking for another outlet for her artistic energies, Anne began teaching chain making and metal working approximately 15 years ago for just pure enjoyment. During those years, Anne found that the creative outlet provided by teaching as well as a consistent demand for her classes was too alluring to deny. Leaving lighting behind in 2003, Anne is now a full-time designer, teacher, and author.
