By Bonnie Fitzgerald

NOTE: Registration will close for this program at 3 p.m. ET on Friday, December 3, 2021.

This comprehensive workshop covers the key knowledge and techniques needed to create unique fine mosaic jewelry. Learn about topics including jewelry-base selection, adhesive choice, and suitable tesserae, and get experience in the skills of precision cutting, artistic laying techniques, and working on a small scale. The instructor provides lots of great tips and individual attention as you create beautiful silver-plate mosaic pendants using mosaic gold, smalti, semiprecious stones, millefiori, and more.

The instructor has prepared kits that include more than enough materials for you to construct 2 mosaic pendants. Included in this kit is an excellent selection of small-scale mosaic materials. The downloadable supplemental supply list details what will be included in your supply kit as well as student provided recommended tools and materials. Mosaic experience is helpful, but not required; all skill levels are welcome.

Supply kits must be purchased from the instructor (download the Supply List) and cost $60. Please place your order no later than one week prior to the workshop’s date. Kits will be shipped the week prior to the workshop.

This class will be recorded. Please see our FAQ for recording terms and conditions.
