Liz Kennedy

I have had a lifelong love of jewellery and stones. I have always made crafts (knitting, crochet, and sewing, jewellery) as an outlet for my creative side. In the past I have done many jewellery courses; silversmith, glass enamelling, beading and metal and wirework. I travel extensively to take courses. As a retired teacher I now have the time to pursue my creativity and beading, metalwork and wirework was the perfect blending of all of my interests. I love to teach so teaching soon followed.

You then use rivets, a cold-connection method, to join the weaving to a sheet metal base. The base will then be textured and a patina applied, if desired, to bring up the surface treatment.
