Enameling – Champleve-Cloisonne 2-Day Workshop with Ilene Kay

April 18 - April 19

All skill levels welcome / 9:00 am-5:00pm each day

In this class, you will have a taste of both processes and create a pair of earrings or a pendant of your design. Champleve does not require a separate setting for a finished piece.
