This workshop will give you knowledge on the properties and durability of amber. We will teach you how to process it by cutting, sanding any polishing in order to show you how you can use it in jewelry making. During the workshop we will shape a chunk of amber, then we will drill it and rivet it to a metal of choice or attach it by wire-wrapping. We will also practice inlaying silver with amber.
