Mechanicals –FUNky Junque necklaces With Jen Cushman

Teacher Bio
[pbe_section global_module=”1262″]

Look like you’re leisurely strolling about Paris flea markets in search of cool found objects for your mixed-media jewelry projects BUT, in reality, you know you’re staying home during the pandemic and making some really FUN wearable art that looks like it could have come from the trendiest of Les Puces Marche! In this workshop we will turn Finnabair’s Mechanicals into cool metal charms to create lovely layered necklaces. The generous kit will allow you to create not one, but two necklaces in junque drawer style.

We’ll also be using the Frank Garcia’s Luxembourg hardware along with Prima Modeling Material to make beautiful vintage hardware castings from lightweight air dry clay. These statement necklaces look like they weigh a ton, but they’re really light and easy to wear thanks to the art material. Instruction includes how to paint and faux finish the castings to mimic real metal hardware. We will talk about how to properly design statement jewelry and how to do the jump ring attachments properly so the necklaces lay well and fit comfortably.  Basic wireworking will be taught as well.

 Note: Some prep work to the charms is necessary before class day in order to show up prepared and ready to create. This mostly includes punching holes into the metal charms beforehand, but more easy and detailed instructions on how to do this will be emailed to students before class.
