What is this class about?

Combining traditional silverwork techniques with metal clay you’ll create a totally unique pendant with the wow factor. All the materials are included in the price. After signing up for the class, you will be given more information on this. You’ll also get a list of the tools you’ll need to bring if you have them. To see a full list of what’s included in the price, see below.

Iwona’s work has a strong narrative quality resulting in some incredibly complex designs. By combining silver tube, wire and metal clay, she creates light, highly sculptural pieces. During the two days you spend with her, you’ll learn her approach, what inspires her and how she designs her amazing creations. Iwona will help you to tell your own stories through your work and teach you how to realise your design ideas.

Skills Required

This course is suitable for metal clay intermediate or advanced level metal clay artists. You don’t need to have any experience of working with silver in a traditional way although that would be an advantage. Iwona will teach you all you need to know to create a stunning pendant. You’ll be doing quite a bit of soldering on this course and you’ll need a bit of experience of soldering for this project. If you have attended Iwona’s previous class, you will be fine for this one.

The class may also appeal to traditional silver workers who have used metal clay to an intermediate level. If you want to see how these two materials can work together successfully, this class is for you.

If you’ve ever struggled with soldering, after spending this time with Iwona you will be able to solder anything to anything! Imagine the possibilities of being able to design and create pieces of jewellery that are not only works of art but tell the story in your head.

By the end of the course, you will fully understand the potential of combining traditional silver techniques and metal clay. And you’ll know how you can use this to create one-of-a-kind, statement jewellery.

What will you create?

This class features a stunning pendant with a dragon wrapped around a central focal element. This project combines fine silver wire and metal clay in a way that uses the wire as a supporting spine for the dragon element.

You have a choice of the focal element for this pendant. It is the only material you will need to source yourself and bring with you. This means it can be whatever you like. The amethyst crystal in the example was specially made for the piece. You could use a crystal of some kind, or maybe you have a beautiful piece of wood, a stone or another natural object that you’d like to use for this project. After signing up for the course, you will be sent guidelines for the size etc for this. Skills learned in this class include more complex sculpting techniques, using a supporting element, combining metal with a softer or more fragile component successfully and soldering.

  • Fine silver wire, 2mm x 20cm long
