Project Description

Your project for this class is to use a rolling mill and paper to decorate a piece of silver sheet, and then carefully saw around the edge leaving a margin to frame your design. You can use a papercraft punch to create your shape, or cut one out yourself using scissors or craft knife - it's up to you!

The videos cover two different ideas for attaching the chain to the pendant, so think about your design and whether the chain will show before choosing the best method for your pendant.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you make!

P.S. the craft punch that I used is made by Woodware Craft Collection.
