Art Nouveau Pendant
Debora Mauser www.deboramauserdesigns.com
Debora will do a quick introduction to soldering and tube setting while working with a pre-textured Art Nouveau copper component. Students will use a small butane torch and solder a sterling silver tube setting, clean the metal and then set a CZ in the tube. To complete the look students will wire wrap 3 coordinating crystal beads and a jump ring. Students will have a choice of 4 different colors. Sponsored by Potter USA, and Halstead Beads.
More about Debora...
I believe that women and men express themselves in many ways; one of the most fun and unique being the type of jewelry that they use to adorn themselves!
I have crafted in almost every medium for years, but once I found metal and wire, that was it for me. I find it fascinating that with a few twists of your hand you can create something beautiful, wearable and unique. I use beads as accents to add color to my creations, but you will find that my metal creations are primarily... metal, lots of texture and movement and deep oxidation are themes throughout my jewelry.
Over the last 8 years I have added enameling to my list of most loved techniques. The range of colors just brighten my day!
As well as designing and making jewelry I travel and teach a wide variety of jewelry
techniques. I love, love, love teaching! Sharing with other enthusiastic, jewelry loving
people is always a joy!
