Join Diane Enger for an evening of creating and learning the basics of painted patina metal earrings.  We will start with sheet copper and end up with 2-3 pairs of earrings.  You will learn to design and cut copper sheet, then finish it and punch holes in the metal so it is ready to be painted.  We will be using a metal paint to create a patina on your copper pieces and then sealing these metal pieces.   A variety of beads and wire components will be used to finish up the design – then add ear wires and the result is one of a kind!.  Choosing colors and creating your own designs, you will make one or more pairs of earrings.

In this class we will review the fusing process and learn the adaptations that need to be made to this process to produce these pendants   We will belearning how to draw a design in the glass using an engraver.  Drawing ability is not necessary as there are a couple of different ways we get around this. It is an easy process to learn and has a variety of possibilities.  We will make 3 pendants.  These make great presents.
