Double Duty: Make and Use Simple Molds to Get the Most out of Your Metal Clay Jewelry Designs
This product will be accessible from My Downloadable Products located in My Account after purchase.
Whether you fabricate jewelry using traditional metalsmithing techniques, or model it in metal clay, chances are you are hand-making your pieces one at a time. Even if you do not choose to repeat the same design, you can broaden your repertoire of techniques using simple molds that you make rather than purchase. Learn ways to translate design elements from fabricated work to metal clay work with control and precision. Noël Yovovich is at home with both fabricated metalsmithing and metal clay, as well as casting and other techniques. She uses an ever-expanding collection of simple molds and metal clay in lieu of casting or in conjunction with it, to allow for a wider—and more immediate—way of working.
Why be limited to purchased stamps and textures? Every time you make a mold of work that you have created, you enlarge your library of elements that can be used to reproduce or re-use past work efficiently and cost-effectively. These elements can be cut, rearranged, changed in scale, and otherwise adapted to new creations. You will see concrete examples of these processes in the Noël's own work.
In this web seminar you'll learn:
- How to make molds of both fabricated and metal clay work, as well as almost anything else that strikes your fancy.
- Tips for using your molds to reproduce pieces, or cut and paste, mix and match to see elements in whole new ways.
- Streamline aspects of your process so you can focus your time on the creative aspects of your work.
- Techniques for making your process more profitable without sacrificing originality.
- And much more!

- The information provided by Noel was good. I did learn from the info provided so it was luck I did not realize it was webinar format or I would have passed on this one. (I much prefer the video format.) Maybe Noel would consider a video lesson same topic with Interweave. (Posted on 2/9/2016)
- This review is on Noel's presentation
- It would be unfair to Noel if I just left my review at 3 stars as that was really directed at the seminar logistics. since they would not provide me with a link I bought the download and just finished watching it. I think Noel provided wonderful information and showed some stunning pieces of her work. I would recommend this webinar. (Posted on 4/3/2015)
- Dissatisfied with Interweave / format
- This is a review not of the content but of the the webinar experience. I was only able to view the webinar partially as I was at a cafe and was unable to hear the speaker. When I contacted customer service about a link, I was given a response that I should have done a save as or something and that a download can be bought shortly. I am not happy with this response nor want to buy the download, paying twice for this program. This may be the last webinar I will buy from here. (Posted on 3/25/2015)
