Instructor: Sandra Zacharia

Skill Level: Confident Beginner

Pre-requisite: Students should know how to saw and file.

Class Description: We will be using fold-forming techniques to create beautiful beads. We will go over different folds, how to form a tight spiral, and how to open your forms to achieve different effects. Made in copper, these beads look great using my fast and simple coloring technique which I will demonstrate. I will also have samples to show you how they are made in sterling silver, 18k gold, sterling silver filled, and 14k gold-filled. We will discuss what to look for when fold-forming various metals.
