About Instructor

One Day Workshop, great for the holidays! Workshop held in Vienna, VA.

This comprehensive workshop covers the key knowledge and techniques needed to create unique fine mosaic jewelry. Learn about topics including jewelry-base selection, adhesive choice, and suitable tesserae, and get experience in the skills of precision cutting, artistic laying techniques, and working on a small scale. The instructor provides lots of great tips and individual attention as you create beautiful silver-plate mosaic pendants using mosaic gold, smalti, semiprecious stones, dichroic glass, and millefiori.

Students are supplied with THREE base-metal jewelry blanks; if time permits, additional pieces may be worked on. A selection of pendant shapes, belt buckles, and hair ornaments are available for purchase, or you may bring your own. A $50 supply fee covers the pendant bases, a wide variety of mosaic materials, adhesive, and some shared tools. An extensive resource list is provided at the workshop.
