Additional Information
Repurpose a nearly 100 year old silver-plated fork or spoon into a pendant with ornate fine-silver wire loops that frame a genuine gemstone and pearl. Learn how to easily cut and perforate silver-plated cutlery, and get great tips on how to stamp on the handles. This class is all about choice -- you can choose a fork or spoon, gemstone, and your word to stamp. Following this class, be prepared to fully anticipate looking forward to estate sales and auctions for silver-plated fork and spoon sets, as this is a highly addictive form of art.  
Students will Learn:
How to use a drill press and cut silver-plated forks and spoons; how to finger-bend wire into ornate loops creating an ornate bail for the fork/spoon pendant; how to effectively metal stamp words onto spoons/forks, as well as softer metals such as copper and silver sheet.  
Familiarity working with fine wire is helpful.
