Hi, it's me - Bettina Welker. I'm really thrilled to be part of this year's Clay Carnival adventure. It will not only be my first time teaching at this event - I also have never been to the bright and glamorous city of Las Vegas.
Well, I was thinking about which class to bring with me to this place of exuberance in light and color and I decided that my "Sorbet Pendant Class" would be a perfect match.
These pendant necklaces feature a lustrous ghost image design in bright and juicy eye-catching colors. The real fun fact about this project however is: The toggle clasp that closes the necklace at the front actually is formed by the Sorbet Pendant itself. It's really a fun class and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.
By the way: all the Kato Poly Clay necessary for the projects will be provided by Van Aken International
And here's the materials list for the Sorbet Pendants:
- Pasta machine
- Acrylic rod
- Rigid and flexible blade
- Craft knife or scalpel
- Cookie cutters (about 1 inch wide - round, triangular, square)
- A very small round cutter (for example a 3-4 mm Kemper Kutter)
