Course outline: Discover the versatility of cement for jewellery! In this class with Ann Shewan you will focus on making your own molds to be used with cement. Each mold is used once, creating a pendent that will be uniquely yours. We will start by talking about the different types of cement, where to buy it, tips on getting a good pour, different materials to use to add colour, curing times and finishing your pendants. The kit fee will include two different types of cement, materials to make your molds, products to add colour, findings and cording to finish your pendants. Note: a kit is required; see details below.
