Let’s face it, you can never have enough earrings! In this exciting class, students will explore different forging and wire wrapping techniques to make two fabulous pairs of earrings. Using copper wire, students will also learn how create earring bases and wrap with crystals, make jump rings and work with a small jeweler’s torch to create head pins for crystal drops as well as ear wires. This class is a must for those aspiring jewelry artists who want to expand their earring design knowledge while learning basic metalsmith techniques.

Most people will complete the project in class.

Melissa Kay-Steves is an award winning artist, instructor, and the founder of Charmtree Jewlery.  She has been making jewelry for more than 25 years.

Note:  Kit fee of $25 due instructor at workshop

The instructor will bring tools, but if you have your own round nose, flat nose and wire cutters, please bring them!
