New ways to Create using CONCRETE

Instructor Bio: 
90 minutes

Watch award-winning artist, author and master-maker Robert Dancik and learn how to work with this amazing "new" material! Concrete is lighter then stone, resin or metal of comparable size, making it perfect to use for jewelry and other objects of personal adornment.

Concrete may seem an unlikely material for jewelry, but time to discover the endless creative possibilities! It’s lightweight, easy to use, extremely versatile, inexpensive, and now in fabulous colors! Yes, COLORS!

Discover how concrete is so strong you can bezel it, or just leave it free-form without a bezel. Form the concrete using molds made from polymer clay, cold-mold silicone, candy molds, fold-formed metal, plus lots more.

Watch how to set your piece using prongs, tabs, wire wrap, and traditional and un-traditional bezels.

But wait there’s more!

  • You can now mix great colors.
  • Plus, see how to set gems, crystals, metal clay, polymer clay and found objects – virtually anything – into the concrete for a permanent cold-connected piece.
  • Then learn how to use micro nuts and bolts right in the concrete creating ways to attach other elements to your piece.
  • Concrete sets in minutes, cures hard and is ready to use in about an hour, making it perfect for a myriad of uses in jewelry and other art forms.

Get ready to create with colorful concrete!
