Torch-fired Cloisonné

Turn simple designs into eye-catching gems of color. Learn to use transparent enamels and a torch to highlight low relief textures on metal. You will texture copper either mechanically or chemically then apply enamel to create elements for earrings, pendants, or bracelet charms. Experience with vitreous enamels is helpful. Instructor will provide etchable images and etching material.

A $10 materials fee is payable to the instructor during class for etchable images and etching material. View Ndidi’s work at
