Lampwork glass and PMC necklace by Dale Wayne

 7th Grade Necklace


I am an art teacher and did 3 collaborative projects with my 7th, 8th, and high school students. The 7th grade study Egypt in the classroom carved eraser tiles based on Egyptian art, printed their images on papyrus, then chose their favorites to make copper charms, one tile to keep and one tile to donate. The 8th grade studies the Bronze age, so we made coins from Bronze clay. Our high school made molds using two part silicone or sculpted their PMC. One student wove little strips. The 3 necklaces were sold at our fund raising auction.

High School Necklace with Dale's glass beads

I have also included an image of a necklace commissioned for a second grade teacher (shown below). It includes silver thumbprints with initials of all of her students. The projects were a big hit.
