Why Hello! Would you like to try your hand at making jewelry? We will go over some basic techniques such as forming, forging, sawing, filing, polishing and finishing. You will have time to make several pieces and I will instruct you how to make a pendant, bracelet, earrings and ring. You can then choose what to make, and depending on how complex your design is you could make several beautiful wearable items! This experience takes place in my home studio, which is well furnished with equipment and tools to make whatever you imagine! All tools and materials are included. No experience necessary. I am also open to hosting experiences out side of the times listed. If you are interested in an evening class, by all means reach out to me - I am happy to try to make it work!
