Using found objects and memories to create beautiful jewelry
In this class Barbara shares some ways you can incorporate some of the wonderful things you've collected over the years, along with sculpting and molding techniques, to create something new. You will learn how to mold your own pieces, create using a variety of clays, and buff and finish your focal bead.
