    This is an exciting new 2-day course where you will get to make your own fused glass cabochon and then set it into a bezel to make a beautiful ring or pendant. Each day starts are 10 am and finishes at roughly 4 pm.

    Day 1 – Will we make some basic fused glass cabochons using a variety of dichroic glass and other coloured glass before firing in a microwave kiln. Then in the afternoon while the glass is cooling we will make a practice ring using copper so that you can try out all the necessary jewellery making techniques such as measuring a ring to size, filing, cutting and soldering etc. You will get the chance to make several glass cabochons, so you can choose your favourite for day 2.

    Day 2 – The second day will be spent making a piece of sterling silver jewellery using your chosen glass cabochon made on day 1. You make a ring, pendant or halo pendant from silver and then create the bezel from scratch for your chosen dichroic glass cabochon.

    Materials included are- A selection of dichroic glass, coloured and clear glass and frit etc for creating fused glass cabochons. All silver needed to create a sterling silver ring or pendant, plus copper for the practice ring.

    Please note – this course is not designed to give you an in-depth knowledge of glass fusing. We will cover the basics to get you started fusing small amounts of glass in a microwave kiln. The learning outcome for the session is to create a glass cabochon and set it into a hand made bezel, with the result being an entire hand made item of jewellery.
