Project Description

What was your source for this jewelry project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo The Art of Metal Clay by Sherri Haab Link to website or photo www.amazon.com/Metal-Clay-Revised-Expanded-Edition/dp/0823099326/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1351178048&sr=8-1&keywords=the+art+of+metal+clay Who is this project for? Women What are you most proud of? The pendant in this piece was my first stone setting, so I was a bit nervous. It was also a bit of an experiment using silver clay for the base which made it some what tricky because of having to compensate for the clay shrinking when its fired. Overall it turned out better than I'd hoped and I look forward to doing more pendants like this one. :)

What you will need

  • A chalcedony druzy stone
  • silver clay to form the setting for the stone
  • fine silver bezel
