Ancient Structures and Surfaces with Nan Roche

Transform polymer clay into jewelry that emulates ancient structures such as chain main, loop-in-loop chains, plaiting and braids. Learn to extrude polymer clay with layers of color within and use these as your 'wire' or 'fiber'. The Asian influenced ancient surfaces presented are faux cloisonné and lacquer work using Nan's unique techniques of captured foil and punched foil. Learn how to rivet with polymer clay while making a neckpiece from components made with these surfaces. You will make integrated findings with polymer clay and Buna rubber. Finally the detailed finishing techniques taught (sanding, polishing) will result in truly professional results. This video presents 7 projects and includes material from 3 days of Nan's workshops.
