In this master class you will explore the process of making a hinged cylindrical receptacle. This small decorative locket is fashioned in the style of a Tibetan prayer wheel. It's a place to hold your secret wishes close to your heart.
The master class will include a variety of techniques. You will learn about textured patterns and stencil making. You will construct a cylindrical locket carcass. Then you will learn how to make tab hinges. You will create a domed lid with elaborate finials, fireable stones and a hidden friction clasp. The class instruction will also cover dry construction, riveting, wire work, simple soldering, patinas and finishing.
Learn to accurately cut and construct all the elements. Once fired, learn the steps to properly polish and assemble the locket.
This is an intermediate level master class so we will assume you have a basic level of understanding and experience of working with metal clay.
