Great Beginings

Last week Karen Taylor flew over from Spain for a two day one to one workshop with me. Karen was a complete beginner with silver clay having only had one not very successful attempt at home on her own. As we never got as far as photographing the pieces Karen has kindly just emailed me these photos.

Karen obviously is very talented and took to Art Clay Silver really well. She made some great pieces. You can see more of her lovely jewellery she makes using Swarovski crystals and semi precious gems on her website Precious.

Over the two days she made

this beautiful owl brooch (my favourite piece I think)

An angel wing and a feather silver pendants

A jewel encrusted syringed heart

and a silver cross pendant with a fused gold top surface using Art Clay Gold Paste.

She also made a ring and set some small stones into flower shapes for future use. We really covered a lot in two days, but having travelled all that distance for a workshop we were trying to cram in as much as we could.
Certainly these are great first pieces. Well Done Karen.


  1. Not only well done to Karen, but well done to both of you.
    I think my fave piece is the syringed heart.

  2. Wow! She is quite talented and you must be a very good teacher. She is off to an excellent start. I do agree...I think the owl is my favorite.
