In this one day Workshop, students will make a set of textured copper beads or buttons with materials provided by the instructor. Metal bead and button making involves a number of processes from which one can achieve endless variation and satisfaction. We will use texturing, disc cutting, drilling, shaping with dapping sets, techniques for annealing and a special magic solder trick just for beads and buttons.
