I have a full service studio in Silverton Oregon & host group classes as well as private lessons in Metal Clays. 

Private Lesson- $30/hr plus cost of metal clay & gem stones.

Materials vary in price and can be worked out in advance of private lesson. 

Use of tools, molds & studio are included in cost of class and lesson.

 Kiln firing fee is $10 for those who create at home but just need firing in a kiln. Please contact me for more information.

 I often show my own personal designs and creations in the photographs to advertise for classes. All of my proprietary jewelry pieces are for sale.

 I will support you to create your own personal pieces using commercial stamps & pre made molds & textures which are available for your use during classes.

 My proprietary hand created textures & carvings will not be available for student use during classes. Thank you for understanding.


Bezel Setting in Metal Clay
2 day workshop
January Saturday 22 & Sunday 23
10 am - 1 pm each day

This class will focus on a pendant with a natural stone set on metal clay. The emphasis will be on bezel making, creating a metal clay backplate, using overlay paste to fuse bezel wire.
Things provided
10 grams of art clay silver
6mm natural stone(you’ll have a couple color options)
Fine silver bezel wire
Overlay paste
Use of tools, torches, kiln, textures, etc
6 hours in person instruction 
The focus will be on stone setting not on individual projects- you will learn how to set a bezel. 
No personal stones please- this is a basic stone setting in metal clay class. To do this technique at home you will need a kiln or live locally so I can fire projects for you. This technique can’t be done with torch firing only. 
Please call for questions.
Previous metal clay experience is helpful but not required.


The Class will be held at my home studio please contact me for details & latest information about masks and other Covid safety practices.

Classroom set up in Silverton Oregon


Class Cancellation policy- If you sign up for a class and register online you may cancel for full refund 7 days prior to class. If you cancel after that for any reason there will be no refund for the class. Please know that I attempt to be flexible but the planning and purchasing of supplies is expensive. Things happen and life can be a big mystery. Unfortunately, it is too hard to run a small shoestring business without a policy. This policy is consistent with the industry standards. 

After several years of "playing" with Metal Clay and taking several classes myself, I took the dive and received my Level 1 certification from Art Clay World. I love bringing this art/craft to people who would otherwise think metal work is too scary. If you can handle a roller, cookie cutter & texture plates/molds you can create a lovely piece of jewelry that you can treasure. I have a couple of quick videos on youtube, in addition to the one above, you can access here for more information:
