Shadowbox Bracelet with Richard Salley
A shadowbox setting is a great way to show off a special stone and at the same time provide maximum protection for the stone. This particular design has hinges for easy putting on and taking off. Also we will construct a sliding hinge pin with a safety to prevent if from getting lost. So grab one of your special stones (or shop for one at Flux), and build this bracelet for a custom piece of wearable art. This workshop is limited to eight students. Studio tools and equipment will be available for use. Students are required to provide a flat-backed cabochon of your choosing no larger than 30mm in any direction.
