Wire 1: Intro to Wire
This class could easily be called “How to Never Pay for Jewelry Again!”
This is an “all about wire” class. We will tackle various techniques and you will learn to make jump rings, head and eye pins, ear wires, make bead dangles and spiral charms. At the end of the class you will be able to construct a necklace, bracelet and earring from start to finish with nothing but wire, hand tools and a few beads. We will also explore finishing techniques such as a basic patina using Liver of Sulphur and polishing using a tumbler. Now you can truly customize your jewelry as well as save money on basic findings. No previous knowledge with wire is required.
* All tools and supplies are provided, but students are welcome to bring their own if they wish.
Class size will be limited to ensure everyone’s safety with strict Social Distancing Protocols in place.
