Secret Treasures...the GLOW edition!

Tuesday August 14 at the studio, 6:30-8:30 pm, $50 (plus tax). (click HERE to pay, you'll be directed to my contact page and will contact me to send you a paypal invoice to pay)

(read all the way through to learn about the optional special edition GLOW pieces we're using!!! but why you wouldn't want to use them...?)

In this class, we'll make sweet little treasure vessels! You'll have 2 finished pieces, similar to art pendants I offer for sale and as custom work in the studio. I've added extra options to this class from the version I've taught in the past, so students old and new will have fun.

The first piece is made from a small glass bottle to which you'll add beads and other bits, all provided by me but personalized by you. You can insert a message into the bottle before it is permanently sealed.

The second piece uses a bottle cap as the base, to which we'll be adding artwork, ephemera and more. I'll have plenty of extra do-dads to choose from, but you may want to bring some of your own. You can also have me add a second bail at the base of this charm...perfect to add on extras*, available for purchase...

Techniques we'll be using...

  • art collaging and embellishing (using some of my favorite tools)
  • creating layers to add interest
  • choosing inclusions to make our project unique

*optional beaded dangles and charms added to base of treasure cap available for purchase!*

 You will finish the artwork for 2 vessels. I'll do the soldering to finish your pendants, and they will be available to pick up the following day!

 Lovely leathers and great chain options will be available for purchase during the class if you'd like to wear your piece home in style. Please note that you will not be learning glass cutting or other soldering skills in this class. All finish-work will be done by the instructor.

All supplies will be provided for the class, UNLESS you wish to bring special items. If you want to use YOUR photos and have a personalized proof sheet for use in class, please contact Sarah AT LEAST 3 DAYS IN ADVANCE OF THE CLASS. Otherwise, you'll be provided with a fun mix of standard photos, wording, props, etc. You will be able to create 2 charms.

AND for any industrious crafters...I'll have extra supplies available so you can make additional TREASURES (for $20 each), in case you have a list of gifts you want to make!

I am limiting this class to 6 participants. No children for this class, please. You may reserve your space with payment via Paypal by going HERE on my website.

Okay...here's the GLOW hoopla!!!

I created multiple small, glow in the dark inclusions for some fun projects I took to Junkstock's Under the Stars early this summer. I intended to create treasure shakers on site, but was too busy to offer the option during the weekend. For this class project, I will provide each student with some glow options to include in treasure vessels. (note the glowing hearts and stars in second photo...more options available!!!)

I'll also be providing the schedule of upcoming classes I'm offering...

I hope you can join me for this fun class!
