In this master class you will create a swivel, hinged locket with a nested nook that swings down to reveal the contents within. The nook can hold many things - keepsakes, photos, memorabilia or a special message. Think of it as a secret niche inside a pendant.
Learn to accurately cut and construct all the elements. Once fired, learn the steps to properly polish and assemble the locket. Finally, we'll review some additional finishing techniques: how to add accents, colour patinas and more.
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.

The Master Class Includes:

  • pattern making
  • paper templates
  • using textures
  • using embeddables
  • appliqués
  • dry construction
  • precision drilling
  • hinge construction & integration
  • friction-style closures
  • bail construction
  • cold connections
  • assembly
  • finishing

This Nested Nook Locket is the perfect jewellery piece to show off your personal story.
