About This Class

Make a sea glass pendant so you can wear a souvenir of your beach vacation all year! 

Sea glass provides a unique challenge when making jewelry.  It's not calibrated (like a stone) so you have to make your own setting, and it can be round, but sea glass often is more free-form.  If you have some experience soldering then this class is the perfect opportunity to practice and step up those soldering skills. We'll learn to make a bezel that will protect the edges of your sea glass, keep it securely set on the pendant, and give your jewelry a polished, professional look.   

These skills will also transfer to making bezels for other found objects and for free-form stones.
