This course is for those of you who have experience working with metal clay and consists of one 15-minute video.
You might want to take a look first at Kris' MC Tidbits & Tricks post on Post Earrings, which will give you perhaps enough information to make your own earrings. Then if you need more details, this course will teach you those.
THIS COURSE'S VIDEO contains only photographs. There are no vignette videos within this course's video, like there are in Kris' other courses.
There is no List of STEPS, List of TOOLS, or List of RESOURCES. All those can be found in other courses. This course is mainly one video explaining the simple process of setting posts into metal clay. It is purely informational so you can watch it without simultaneously making your creation.
The video includes photos (for close up detail), narrative explanation, and options for later creations. And if you take a course from Kris, she is forever at your beck and call via email to answer any questions.
First, Kris created I Love Silver for novice to expert metal clay artists and artisans, because she loves metal clay and wants to share.
Kris designs and creates fine and sterling silver, minuscule sculptures as pendants, earrings, charms, rings, and more. Her work features landscapes, wildlife, tracks, and bits of nature. Her medium is precious metal clay.
