Precious Metal Clay Lacy Bead

Transforming clay into silver is a fascinating process and yields dazzling results. In this one-day workshop with artist and instructor Janice Colvin, students will learn to craft a silver bead using PMC3 (syringe). The finished bead is large enough to be the focal point of a necklace or chain. Registered students will be given a kit that includes PMC3 and a cubic zirconia stone. Prior PMC knowledge is necessary for this class.

Students ages 16 and up will enjoy learning from Colvin who is an adventurous artisan and co-owner of Sea Foam Jewels. Fashioning casual and fine jewelry using sterling, imported crystal and glass beads, this web-based business is popular among jewelry lovers. The class will be held from 11 am to 4 pm on Saturday, October 18. The deadline for registration is October 10.

Fees are $98 for Arts Council Members, $118 for non-members and includes clay, and necessary tools. The class will be held at the Centre for the Arts, 206 S. Commerce St., Centreville, MD. Call 410.758.2520 or email for more information.
