Join master metal clay artist, Pam East, LIVE online November 13th at 1PM, ET, and learn how to make this movable parts pendant!

“I absolutely love jewelry with secrets. Over the years I have incorporated hidden compartments, tiny jewels on the back, and other details only the wearer knows. Those secrets make a piece that much more delicious, and that much more fun to wear and share with friends.“ ~Pam East

Pam will show you step-by-step how to create this pendant with a hidden element or scene inside that only YOU know about! When you wear it, the lid of the box slides back and forth, giving just a “peek” of the secret inside.

The class will cover handling metal clay, both wet and dry construction for the box, creating the hidden elements, proper firing, patina and polish, and finally the riveted bail that makes the whole thing work!

AND Pam will be taking live questions from participants.
