New Course (Suitable for beginners) This is an exciting new 2 day course where you will get to make your own fused glass cabochons and then set one into a bezel to make a beautiful ring or pendant. Day 1 - Will we make some basic fused glass cabochons using a variety of dichroic glass and other coloured glass before firing in a microwave kiln. Then in the afternoon while the glass is cooling we will make a practice ring using copper so that you can try out all the necessary jewellery making techniques such as measuring a ring to size, filing, cutting and soldering etc. You will get the chance to make several glass cabochons so you can choose your favourite for day 2. (finish time on day 1 will be about 4 pm). Day 2 - The second day will be spent making a piece of sterling silver jewellery using your chosen glass cabochon made on day 1. You make a ring, pendant or halo pendant from silver and then create the bezel from scratch for your chosen dichroic glass cabochon. (finish time on day 2 will be about 5 pm). Materials included are - A selection of dichroic glass, coloured and clear glass and frit etc for creating fused glass cabochons. All silver needed to create a sterling silver ring or pendant plus copper for the practice ring. Please note - this course is not designed to give you an in-depth knowledge of glass fusing. We will cover the basics to get you started fusing small amounts of glass in a microwave kiln. The learning outcome for the session is to create a glass cabochon and set it into a hand made bezel with the result being an entirely hand made item of jewellery.
