Introduction Into Spoon Rings and Spoon Bowl Pendants with Chris Tedeton
What You Will Need For The Class:
Tea Spoon, it must be silver plated or Sterling Silver
Steel Ring Mandrel
Nylon Teardrop Hammer
Note: If you are a novice I would highly suggest using
Silver Plated Spoons for the reason it is a lot more forgiving if there is a
mistake. In this class tea spoons only! A teaspoon messures 6 inch in
Chris will be taking you through every step of making a spiral
spoon ring. We will measure, cut, file and sand, hammer, and polish to a
stunning ring. We will take the spoon bowl that was removed and make that into
a beautiful pendant for a necklace.
This is a great opportunity to take that real pretty spoon
you have put away and never look at, or you have a spoon from Mom or Grandma
that just sits and collects dust. Now you can wear it and show off that
Class cost: $80
About The Artist, Christopher Tedeton:
I fell in love with art at a very young age. My parents had many books on art and I could not keep my nose out of them. I have held many titles in my adult life such as painter, carpenter, salesman, and many more but an artist was not one them untill in mid 2013. I came across coin rings then, which lead me to coin art such as bells, puzzles, coin cutting, and much more. One coin ring is what fueled the artist in me. You can find us most Saturdays at Charlottesville City Market selling my pieces and doing some demo's from time to time. We have been there now three great years.
He is also on Facebook as Cash on Hand! That's how I found him!
