Pierced Coin Pendant with Zac Tedrow--Saturday, May 25, 10am-12:30pm
Some of the world's greatest sculptors have lent their designs to coins through the ages, making coins as valuable to collectors for their beauty as for their monetary value. Join Studio JSD Resident Artist Zac Tedrow as he presents a brand new class utilizing and enhancing the inherent artistry found in coins to produce uniquely beautiful pieces of jewelry. Students will design and create their own coin pendant using piercing, sawing, and finishing techniques; no previous jewelry experience is required, making this a great beginner project! All materials are provided to produce a finished pendant, including your choice from a wide variety of foreign and domestic coins. Students may choose to bring a coin from their own collection that is meaningful--maybe a keepsake from a foreign trip or remembrance of a special date!
