Monika comes by train and Michael picks her up from the station. They both enter the studio at 09.30. First coffee, after all it was quite a trip and because of the Corona measures it is not allowed to eat or drink something on the train.
We start the training at 10.00 and I explain the planning and working method. First practice with colored woolen threads. Once the rhythm is in, we switch to shiny silver and Monika braids a beautiful bracelet. A sterling hook and eye closure is attached to the ends. This closure is then elegantly finished with silver clay.
Ready to fire, the jewelry is placed on a fiber blanket in the oven and heated at 800 °C for about 30 minutes. After the firing process, the bracelet is polished and tumbled. During these last steps we have a nice chat about our individual plans. After all, I am phasing out, Monika is becoming more and more visible within the world of metal clay. At 17.15 bring her back to the station.
That is, if the Corona measures are not tightened.
Monika, thank you for another nice day.
Have a great week and see you Saturday the 19th!
