  Supplies: 10 grams will be brought for each participant at a cost of $25.00.  Additional silver metal clay can be purchased if needed.

Artist Bio:  Susan Brooks certified in all 3 levels of PMC with Mary Ann Devos through the William Holland School for Lapidary Arts as well as certification in Metal clay (both silver and base metals) through  Aussie Metal Clay and in base metals through Clay Revolution.  She is a certified Art Clay instructor and has studied with Holly Gage and Rodi Frunze online.  "The creative arts have been a passion for me for as long as I can remember and has often been my "ticket to sanity".  Whether through basketry, weaving, gourd art or jewelry making, I could always find some peace and pleasure.  In 2010, I discovered the world of metal clay and became hooked immediately.  the possibilities of adding textures and gemstones to jewelry is very exciting and seems a natural way to create pieces that express one's individual personality and style.
