Introducing a collaborative class between Everlasting Fire Studio and Tytin Jewelry!
We have worked together to create a class for beginners, and even those with a little experience in one or both of these mediums. In just 2 days, 6 hours total, you’ll get to make 2 custom finished glass cabochon pendants.

Day 1 at EFS: We’ll introduce you to the world of borosilicate glass! You’ll learn to make cabochons by making a clear maria, and then decorating it with your choice of glass frit, stringers, and color dots. We’ll show you how to lens the front, and finish it off to a final glass cabochon. You’ll make a few in our class, and your work will anneal in a kiln overnight. No worries, we’ll bring the glass to Tina at Tytin Jewelry for you so it’ll be waiting for you there for the second day of class.

Day 2 at TJ: You will be introduced to fundamental jewelry making skills such as sawing, filing, and polishing. We'll go over logistics and how-to's and with your creativity, you'll design a completely custom pendant for your glass cabochons using the tab setting technique. If time allows, we'll also go over prong setting. Options of metal include copper and brass. All materials and tools will be supplied.



Included Studio Time at EFS:
All students will get 3 hours open studio time in the studio to come back and make more glass. Students will need to provide their own glass for open studio, but we are including some use of frit during these open studio hours if you would like to use it.

Included Studio Time at TJ:
All enrolled students receive 3 practice passes that you can use during our Open Studio hours. Come in and practice or finish your class projects at your leisure. You are welcome to use the studio tools and available copper or brass metal from our scrap bin. Practice Passes do not include instruction and expire 6 months after workshop date.
