Let’s face it, you can never have too many pairs of earrings. In this fun workshop you will make two gorgeous pairs of mixed metal hoop earrings.

Students will be introduced to cold connections, forming, wrapping and texturing wire. They will also learn how to safely use a butane torch to make balled headpins for crystal wrapped drops and earwires. Packed with lots of tool technique tidbits, this class will teach budding jewelry artists as well as more seasoned jewelry makers how to get more creative with design.

These earrings will quickly become your new “go to” for everyday wear. Two styles will be taught and students will have enough supplies to make 2 pairs of earrings. (Most students will complete during class).

$23 kit fee due to instructor at workshop. Kit includes:

  • 14, 16 and 26 gauge copper wire
  • 16 and 20 and 22 gauge silver wire
  • (2) 4mm crystal beads
  • (2) 6mm Swarovski crystal beads

All materials and tools provided but if you have special beads you would like to use, bring them along.
