Electroforming in Orange County

The best thing about electroforming classes is the variety of objects the students bring in to process. Just take a look at this collection of finished projects from Sherri’s February class at Brea Bead Works in Brea, California. Students electroformed seashells, glass, polymer clay, leaves, acorns and even lace fabric. With results like this, it’s no wonder Electroforming is becoming Sherri’s most popular class.

In addition to the all-day electroforming class, the next day Sherri taught her popular class on doing image transfers on metal clay. She was grateful for the assistance of Cassy Muronaka, and daughter Michelle, who helped tremendously even with baby Adeline in tow.

Cassy is a jewelry artist herself, and has made some amazing things using Sherri’s E3 Electroforming kit. Check out her blog on her first experiments here (note that the E3 Electroforming kit is now sold separately from the E3 Etch kit). Cassy has also done some exciting work electroforming on polymer clay, which she graciously shares in a multi-part blog. Follow her process and experiments, and see her amazing finished pieces starting here.

Sherri will teach at Brea Bead Works again on May 14th and 15th, so if this looks like fun, please come join us. Brea Bead Works features a variety of classes with local and visiting instructors. They offer a preview event prior to each quarter so customers can view class samples and meet instructors, and then be prepared to register for classes, which sometimes sell out quickly.
