Dates/Times: February 9, from 9:00am to 4:30pm
Fees: $185 » includes class fees, all necessary materials, use of instructor’s tools, & handouts.

Two of your favorite instructors have teamed up to bring you a great combo class! Beginning with Master Art Clay Instructor, Jackie Truty, each student will use a premade core of wood to personally design a solid silver Temple Bell. First you will roll out Art Clay Silver and then, learn how to create and then overlap small pieces to develop your design. After firing your bell, you will finish the piece and have a one hour lunch break.


After lunch students will work with Master Wire Jewelry Instructor, Dale Cougar Armstrong, to turn the bell into a pendant and then create matching earrings. Graceful and sophisticated, these lightweight earrings are sure to become one of your “go-to” designs when you are looking for something just a little bit different. Using sterling silver chain, wire and a choice of garnet, amethyst, or jade gemstone beads, each student will personalize their Trio of Solid Silver Temple Bells and wear them out of class.

The class fee includes teacher fees, all necessary silver wire, chain, findings, gemstone beads, Art Clay Silver, wood form, use of tools, kilns and materials.
