Class Description: Who doesn’t love art deco! This pendant builds on precise and boldly delineated geometric shapes, contrasts in texture and shape, and simple straight lines which are the hallmark of the art deco age. This project will give your metalworking skills a workout and build your confidence.

(The main piece is textured using a rolling mill. We will provide a textured piece of metal in your kit, but will also demonstrate the use of the rolling mill during class and you are welcome to roll your own.)
