Join multi talented jewelry artist Sulie Girardi and learn how to make a stunning metal clay pendant set with a beautiful cabochon stone. Time to dig out those beautiful cabochon stones in your stash and create a unique textured pendant to show it off. Sulie shows you how to make a bezel made of fine silver bezel wire that is fired embedded in your metal clay piece: no soldering required!
This method minimizes distortion and splitting, and illustrates how to work with shrinkage, rather than fighting against it. Complete your pendant with an original bale and then see close-up how Sulie sets the stone for a secure and stunning look.
Included are 2 BONUS videos; learn to make a rolled up bale AND making a toggle clasp from a branch!
