Today was the last day of the workshop. We learned to solder a bezel, solder a back plate to the bezel, and solder the bezel onto one of the locket doors, use micro bolts, and many other things.
I got my cuff finished enough for photos, but there's still some file work and some work on the bezel that I need to do.
I used one of my favorite photos of my son in the locket. Stefan put Pawlie Newman under his shirt and Pawlie stuck his head out the neck opening. They did this frequently and if Stefan had his head tilted one way, Pawlie had his head tilted the same way.
The band has some texture on the edges and I randomly stamped some designs and some larger dimples on it.
I enjoyed this workshop very much. Learning how to do the hinges opens up a lot of new design possibilities.
Richard Salley and Martina Stein are tentatively planning more classes at Spring Beads. Contact Spring Beads and get on their notification list for more information.
Tomorrow I'll head back home. I plan on taking a pit stop in downtown Huntsville. There are some great antique stores there.
