Proposed workshop: Custom Clasps

WEBSITE:  www.Antelman.com  

EMAIL: info@antelman.com

 Create clasps that are safe, secure and truly one-of-a-kind. Come up with unique solutions to complete your designs. Learn the key and box clasps, make original simple latches, and unusual shaped ear nuts. We will discuss customizing terminals and findings to unify your art jewelry. We will explore a variety of solutions to link your custom-made clasp to the rest of your piece. Students are expected to go with their own design impulses in order to explore new ideas in finishing their jewelry. Basic fabrication, including soldering, required.

Handouts with step-by-step images and descriptions are supplied along with a list for student supplies and resources

 Artist Biography

Alison B. Antelman exhibits and sells her work from her studio, galleries and at craft shows nationally where she was awarded; 2010 and 2009, Best of Jewelry at Sun Valley Center Arts & Crafts Festival in Ketchum, Idaho; 2009 Best of Show-Jewelry at Park City Kimball Arts Festival in Park City, Utah. Her work is in the Lark Books publication, 500 Gemstone Jewels and the November 2010 issue of Lapidary Journal’s, Jewelry Artist magazine.

            She teaches classes and workshops at the Mendocino Art Center, Richmond Art Center, Scintillant Studios, Metal Arts Society of Southern California, Metal Arts Association of Silicon Valley in California, Sun Valley Center for Arts in Sun Valley, Idaho and in her own studio.

Hi Missy,
great to hear from you. I applied to the Bend High Desert Art show for this August, we’ll see what happens.  My clasp class is intermediate level and up and the Hydraulic press class is for all levels. Both are clear and concise two day classes that students have been successful in.

daily rate: I usually do a flat rate of $600 for a weekend workshop or $50 an hour (the flat rate is the better deal), plus travel and housing (although it is possible that my husband needs to go up there for work so maybe we can work something out regarding housing). I usually have a $25 kit fee for the clasp class

Number of students depends upon what the studio can handle-we can talk further but I’m fine with 10 to 12 students.


Available dates for workshop is April 23-24 or April 30-May 1, 2011

 2 dayWorkshop: $50.00 hourly/ 350.00 day
