Polymer Micro Mosaics for Jewelry

Cynthia Toops is widely recognized for her artistry in polymer clay, most especially for her micro-mosaics. If you are not familiar with her work, here is your chance to investigate it up close (she has AMAZING samples) and learn how to make treasured mosaics yourself. You will learn to transform a basic material into incredible images to use like gems in pendants, brooches, and rings. This class will cover mixing unique colors and choosing a pallet, making mosaic elements, and setting and finishing the mosaic in a piece of jewelry or frame. Metalsmiths can bring a finished piece with a thick-walled bezel to work with. No experience necessary, returning students welcome. Some materials included.
