Cholla Cactus Pendant

Wednesday June 6

6:00pm - 9:00pm








I'm bringin' a little piece of the magical Southwest Desert up to Milwaukee with me! 

You can have one for yourself in silver.


We will cut up skeleton pieces, file and shape them and build a 2 part mold around them to be used many times.

This will give you a full 3D bit of Cholla Cactus to wear close to your heart.

The chain in the photo is a Cardano.  Great texture to compliment the silver cactus.








Wired Silver Ring

Saturday 5pm-9pm


Sunday 9am-12 noon


This is an interesting ring.  The funky wire look is all the rage. 

You will use PMC and silver wire to create this fun piece.

Definitely need a little metal clay experience and a little metalsmithing

background would help as well.

You will most definitely need a metal stepped ring mandrel on a stand and

a small bench vise to work on this.

You will be doing a little of everything.

This is a two day class in case you didn't catch that.

Saturday we start at 5pm and work until 9pm. 

Sunday morning we will start at 9am and finish up by noon.

Great way to finish up Saturday and start your Sunday!
