METALS / JEWELRY

SILVER EARRINGS

Sharon K Novak

Create a pair of unique sculptural earrings in sterling silver using basic metalsmithing techniques and tools! Design and cut your earring shapes out of thin-gauge silver. Enrich the surface with texture or words using hammers, stamps, files or punches. Bend, twist or 'form' your earrings dimensionally. Create movement and areas of interest by adding colorful glass or semi-precious beads with linear elements of wire that you learn to twist, coil, spiral and forge. Learn to ‘cold-connect’ shapes of copper or brass with wires or rivets to add greater contrast. Attach ear wires and wear your earrings home! All tools and materials are provided. No experience required.

REPURPOSE OLD JEWELRY

Michelle Moore

We all have that single earring, broken necklace or gifted bracelet we don't wear but just can't seem to part with. Well, if this sounds familiar, join us to learn to mend, redesign and recreate to turn these orphan pieces into something unique that you will enjoy wearing. Please bring your bracelets, pins, pendants and necklaces to be deconstructed, as well as incomplete pairs of earrings. You will be provided inspiration and ideas, stringing material, components, findings, beads, jump rings, clasps and ear hooks plus tools to finish it off! At least 3 days prior to class (sooner is better), please email a photo of the jewelry pieces you plan to bring. This will help to prep materials specific to your project.
