|Join me on Saturday, April 16th for Snap To It! Cabochons for Snap Jewelry. See below for class info.|
Noosa, that offered stylish, Boho jewelry that featured snap-in components called "chunks", made from metal, stone, ceramic, wood, glass, resin, and more. You can unsnap them and put new ones in every day to match whatever you're wearing, and the jewelry styles offer something for everyone. The trend has caught on and now there are a lot of companies making similar jewelry styles that all fit the same snaps. Brands that are generally interchangeable are Noosa, Ginger Snaps, and more. Snaps (also called chunks, poppers, and snap charms) come in different diameters and as many styles as there is imagination.
In the class we will learn all about cabochon mandrels and how to use and maintain them, how to size your work to fit the mandrels, what designs work well in this format, and how to finish them when they come out of the kiln. You'll also learn how to source and/or make jewelry that accepts these snaps, and how to display them at shows.
Students should bring any glass colors that they want to work with, didymiums, and any tools important for your most common designs. To purchase and save your seat in this class click HERE.
