    Calgary Rock and Lapidary Club, 3650 19 St NE #13, Calgary, AB T2E 6V2, Canada

    When: Saturday, 14 October 2017, 10:00 am to 6:00 pm and one finishing evening
    Where: Calgary Rock and Lapidary Club, 3650 19th St NE, Bay # 13, Calgary
    Cost: $180.00 per CRLC member
    Maximum of three students

    Description: Learn how to make your own jewellery pieces with precious metal clay.
    On Saturday, 14 October 2017, the instructor will demonstrate the techniques to make the PMC3 pendant and earrings and then provide ongoing supervision and tips.
    The students will learn how to prepare the tools and cutters prior to starting to work with their clay; how to roll the clay out evenly and consistently; how to add patterns and textures; and how to use the cutters and templates to design their pieces.
    The students will be able to choose a Cubic Zirconia(CZ) fireable gemstone to add to their pendant and learn a simple stone setting method.
    They will learn how to dry and sand their green ware and how to join layers of greenware together. The students will then be shown how to set-up the kiln to fire the silver clay pieces. The students may depart at this time.
    It will be necessary for the students to return on an open session evening to polish/work harden their pieces and add the supplied jump rings and ear wires as desired.
    Each student will complete the class with a finished pendant and earring set.

    The cost of the class covers 25 grams of PMC3 clay each, the studio fee, use of the instructors tools during class and sterling silver jump rings and ear wires to complete the pendant sets.

    Persons wishing to take this class are to contact Dale Nielsen directly at dale_n@icloud.com.

    Note: Half of the class fee must be paid by Monday, 02 October 2017 so that the clay products required for the class may be ordered. The remainder of the fee is due no later than the day of the class. Payable to the instructor.
