As Posted By Jean.....
thank you Jean!!
Lynne's very personal Little Classic Book Pendant workshop is jam-packed with techniques that you can use over and over again for your artwork! This tiny, but exquisite (1" X 1.5") journal has pages yet unwritten for your quirky poetry or secret thoughts and wishes.
Students will learn how to prepare and solder copper plates, use guilder's paste, assemble and add pages to little books with binders glue, transfer images to leather and create an ingenious, unique hinging method for closure.
You will be learning soldering skills to create the front and back of the book. Creativity will take over as you add brass findings or imprints to the cover. You'll use real leather for the spine and personalize the title with a transfer technique onto the leather. As the last step, you will fill your mini-marvel with pages of heavy paper stock, and clasp with a special swivel piece that you'll fashion with wire. Lynne's Little Classic Book Pendant is perfect to hang on a simple, yet “classic” necklace to show it off!
