            What: August's meeting will be the club's first attempt at a remote demo

 Alan and Lauren Zenreich will be doing a demo on Eccentric Jewelry Turning- Making Pendents. They were demonstrators at the last AAW Symposium and were fantasic.

Why hide your turnings on a shelf?  Turned jewelry is displayed proudly to many, many people. Pendants are a pleasure to wear, and to create.

Alan and Lauren Zenreich show the tools, techniques and procedures used to make their wood turned jewelry.   They will be demonstrating from their shop and studio in New Jersey, via a live, interactive video connections, so you can see and hear them and they can see and hear the club members.

Topics include:  

  • Layout and preparing of blanks for turning
  • Affixing work to an indexable offset backing plate using turner's tape
  • Multi axis positioning to facilitate boring holes and scribing lines
  • Turning the pendants, cutting arcs and beads, smoothing adjoining eccentric surfaces, cutting beads and preparing the work for finishing
  • Using the turnings as a canvas by incorporating semi-precious stones and beads, pyrography, archival inks and other embellishments in the pendants and necklaces.
  • Assembly techniques for inserting pins and jewelry findings

***please be ready to start the business meeting promptly at 1:00. We will need to get through it as quickly as possible. The remote session will start at 2:00. We will do the raffle and any remaining show-n-tell / business meeting that remains after the session is over.
