Class Fee: $160.00, includes everything except the rhinestones!

With romantic and spiritual inspiration Debby Anderson comes to Gilding the Lily! We are thrilled to have this northern California artist come teach with us. Debby is excited to share her love of shaping, manipulating and forging wire to create beautiful pendants and charms. In this full day class she will share with you how to create multiple pendants and charms in different shapes and sizes. These are perfect to then use in your own necklace, bracelet and mixed media designs. You will learn to securely attach and embellish vintage gems and found objects while using solder with a light touch. Debby will share her popular gilding and finishing techniques, as well as her way of stitching wire with a soldering iron. In addition we will be working with sculpting clay and resin to permanently encase your images and trinkets. You may also want to add a touch of color and antiquing to your image to add a time worn, old world effect. Debby will have a wide variety of her beautiful images to share. This is sure to be a fun filled, action packed day and we hope you can join us in creating your own Gilded Relics!
