Product Overview

Cathy Claycomb, Master Instructor. 

Combine your love of stained glass and beading in one class! Combine non-traditional glass objects to fabricate ultra contemporary panels. Learned to work with Kokomo rondels, found items or head glass. Use common materials to produce “bronzed” reinforcement that allowed open-ended design and dramatic dimension.  Combine all that with semi-precious and stone beads!  Embellish “bronzed” and copper or brass framework with decorative solder and gracefully wired and soldered turquoise, red coral, jade and more.  After this class you may never make just a glass panel again!

Student must bring: 50/50 solder (available for purchase in class as well), ball point pen other than black, T-shirt rags, Burnisher (available for puchase in class as well, and an Exacto knife with extra #11 blades, vinyl gloves, and needle nosed pliers.

Students are invited to bring beading tools, large (25mm+-) and small beads (5/0, 6/0) of their choice or purchase them during class. Because a variety of project variations will be presented, a selection of items will be offered for sale during class from which to choose to create a work involving hand selected headglass, special metal, or custom-made rondels.

Glass specific to this project will be available to purchase during class.
