Step up your metalsmithing game with this fun pendant embellished with water castings! Students will use a free-form stone as the centerpiece and surround it by organic sterling components that resemble small woodland lichens. Water casting will be demonstrated, and students will learn two different bail options to to make their finished piece their own. Along the way, students will add useful techniques to their metalsmithing toolbox. This project will cover how to make and size a custom bezel, stick soldering, sawing, how to create a custom bail, stone setting, and finishing. The instructor will also address use of patinas, and tips and tricks for using a flex shaft.
