Instructor: 
Duration: 
105 minutes

Do you love the Industrial look of steel?

Join me, Alison Lee, your host at craftcast.com, along with multi-talented jewelry artist Cindy Pope and learn to create jewelry from steel.

Cindy will show you all you need to know to start working with this amazing product, Hadar’s LS Steel XT.

“This is an amazing clay and very different than other base metal clays. It has many different looks from a matte black right out of the kiln to an antique silver look when polished, to a shiny gunmetal look when polished and patina’d. So it is really like 3 different metals.”

Watch and learn from a pro how to use this clay that’s unbelievably lightweight and strong, making it a great choice when you want to work big but don’t want to worry about weight when wearing.

Ms. Pope shows you 3 different finishing techniques that will give you 3 totally different looks.

Learn step-by-step how to create this futuristic looking 3D layered pendant and a uniquely constructed seamless ring with bright white CZs which look amazing against a deep black surface.

Learn all you need to know to construct, fire, finish and seal 2 stunning pieces using LS Steel XT Clay. Plus Cindy will demonstrate how to polish perfectly using the popular Jool Tool.

*BONUS* for Silhouette users: a bonus video on the special techniques used for cutting LS Steel XT with the silhouette. This will include BONUS silhouette files PLUS the template files for hand cutting if you don't have a Silhouette.

No experience necessary.
