Learn how to make stunning borosilicate glass chains with Cha Cha Chainz! In this flameworking class, you will explore techniques for melting and bending clear and colored rods to create beautiful, wearable works of art. All skill levels are welcomed and encouraged to join. We will discuss symmetrical connections and tips to keep your chains from cracking by inspecting areas of stress and tension within the glass. Additionally, you will be given the opportunity to combine glass with other materials to create unique, exquisite pieces. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to make something truly extraordinary; so bring some of your own jewelry for inspiration and let’s mix it up and get creative!
