Once a teacher, always a teacher. My 40+ years of working with students means I'm itching to help you learn and share my love for jewelry making. Come join me in a class and try your hand at metal smithing and beyond. We'll play with tools and have a good time exploring the world of metal and stones. All classes are all-inclusive. All you need to bring is a good attitude and a smile, and leave with a new piece of jewelry that you made!

Come learn how to make a cute pair of real gemstone & sterling silver earrings in this fast-paced and informative 2.5 - 3 hour class. (Some students may complete the project in more or less time. Ample time will be given for all students to complete their earrings!) Cost is $45.
Students will learn how to make a classic pair of gemstone dangle earrings from semi precious gemstone beads & sterling wire ~ no pre-made anything. Included in your kit is your choice of gemstones from my collection as well as enough sterling silver wire to complete your project. All materials and tools will be included ~ just bring an adventurous spirit, and take home brand new pair of sterling silver & gemstone earrings and you can say, “I made these!” (I'll even include one of my cute little cloth pouches where you can store your new earrings!!)
Skills learned in class will include: Torch safety, drawing a bead on a sterling wire, proper procedures for wrapped loops and standard ear wire fabrication.
Students will have a chance to see several ideas for artistic modifications to the basic style & will be given info on tools needed to continue to make once at home, if desired. Additional kits & tools will be available for purchase, if desired.
Please wear closed toe shoes, tie long hair back and secure any loose clothing items (ie. hoodie strings) for this class.
