You don't need a green thumb to make metal flowers and leaves. Using copper, brass, bronze, or silver, learn how to form flowers to create an ever blooming garden. Connect the flowers on a stem or vine then add some leaves to make a pin, pendant, bracelet, or sculpture. A variety of flowers will be demonstrated. Techniques shown will include sawing, soldering, repoussé, simple laminations, and a variety of hammering techniques.
