Sculptural Slug Pendants & Vein Earrings using Base Metal Clays
Join master jewelry maker Hadar Jacobson, and learn to make a hollow form using metal clays.
These shapes are built “down” in reverse. We start with a solid shape and then hollow out by carving.
Watch as Hadar reveals her techniques for creating sculptural pendants and earrings. Ms. Jacobson starts with an overview of clay choices from her own line of unique colored metal clays, combining both bronze and steel metal clays for this project. Learn how she adds both granulation and patina, to create a variety of dramatic effects.
Then watch and learn how to create her “Vein” earrings! Hadar show you step-by-step how to create a variety of patterns.
Ms. Jacobson shows you everything you need to know to be successful in creating your own sculptural and vein-like designs!
