Two Worlds Collide: Copper Cuffs with Silver Metal Clay Embellishments
Saturday & Sunday, January 13 & 14, 2018
10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Jonna’s Home Studio
Escondido, CA

collaged pebbles cuff-copper & silver-72jonna-copper_silver_desert_cuff-5965-72jonna-figleaf_opal-cuff-5978-72

In this workshop, we will explore a variety of jewelry making techniques, beginning by patterning copper blanks in the rolling mill.  We will also discuss other ways of patterning the blanks for those who do not have easy access to a rolling mill.  After shaping the patterned copper into the cuff form, we’ll make silver metal clay embellishments to decorate the bracelets.  After firing and finishing the silver metal clay, we will rivet the pure silver decorations to the copper cuff.  Each bracelet will be unique and all will be beautiful.

All skill levels.

Open Studio
Tuesday, January 23, 2018
10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Jonna’s Home Studio
Escondido, CA

Every month I host an open studio day for a maximum of 8 students. This provides an opportunity for participants to work on their own projects using my equipment.  Of course, I will be on hand to answer questions and help students on an individual basis.  Given sufficient notice, I can also demonstrate specific metal clay and other jewelry-making techniques.  If you’re interested, please register early as there’s usually a wait list for these sessions.

All skill levels.
$100 plus materials as needed

Wrap Your Wrist in Silver, Gold, Color and Sparkle
Saturday & Sunday, February 10 & 11, 2018

10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Jonna’s Home Studio
Escondido, CA

Jonna-Many_Splendored_Thing_Bracelet-7570-72

In this workshop, each student will make beautiful panels of fine silver to create a dramatic bracelet.  Decorations on the panels are maker’s choice.  You can embellish with pearls, small cabochons, flat-backed treasures, cubic zirconia or other sparkly stones that can withstand the heat of the kiln, and accents of 24k gold.  In my case, “more is more,” and I’ve included everything in my sample but you get to choose in creating your bracelet.  If students embellish their panels fairly simply, they will be able to complete the bracelet in the workshop.  I’ve found that the urge to embellish is strong, however.  Some students prefer to make elaborate panels.  If this is the case, they learn all they need to know to finish the bracelet at home or they come to an Open Studio Day to complete their piece.  In all cases, the bracelets made by the students are gorgeous.

Some silver metal clay experience preferred.

    Hi Jonna, The website is beautiful. I wondered if you have considered a class for bronze clay – without firing time. Since many of us have kilns at home, perhaps you could do a design/construction class and we can fire at home. Just a thought. Love you, Kamal

  4. Sylvia Jimenez says:

    I would also be interested in bronze clay but I don’t have a kiln.

      Hey, Sylvia, No worries! I have one and do firing for students at a minimal cost. I still think about the fabulous work you did in Pauline’s class. See you tomorrow!!! Big hugs, Jonna

      • Sylvia Jimenez says:

        Thank you for your kind compliment. I would love to take another class with Pauline some day.
        I am interested in a bronze clay class but unfortunately I am not available this weekend. Maybe next time around. I love the pendant you made!
        See you later today.
