NEW DESIGN by Lynda Medore and TRAFFICKED DESIGNS
MAKE ONE, DONATE ONE
Another great design by Lynda Medore for TRAFFICKED Designs! On Monday, May 5th, class #1 will begin a copper and sterling silver chain for a heart pendant which will be completed at class #2 on Monday, May 19th. Both classes begin at 1:30 PM Central time. The chain will include hammering, drilling, and oxidizing. The pendant will require drilling, riveting, and oxidizing. These projects will require a riveting hammer, planishing hammer (or ball peen), two flat nose pliers, round-nose pliers, a steel bench block, #1000 steel wool, an old cloth because the aging solution can get messy. Bring another cloth or scrap of leather to put under the bench block would help deaden the noise. Each class is $15 which includes studio fee for the gallery
New Braunfels Art League at 239 W San Antonio St., New Braunfels, Texas on Monday, May 5 and 19th, from 1-3:30pm. To enroll in the class, please call Lynda Medore at (830) 358-0186.

Lynda Medore has been a member of the New Braunfels Art League and displaying jeweler since 2000. She is originally from Beaumont, Texas where she worked in such left-brain fields as dental hygiene and flow meter engineering. She moved to the Texas Hill Country in 1991 where she discovered her creativity. Her earlier work was focused on making jewelry with gemstone beads, mostly for herself and for gifts. Then in 1993 she learned glass blowing in Wimberley, Texas and lampworking (forming glass with the heat of a torch) at Penland Craft School, in NC. There she studied with Kari Russell-Pool, making intricate flower petals and stems and “welding” them together with the torch. While there she met Allison Schaefer who was one of the first glass beadmakers.
