DIY Jewelry: Feathers, Leather And Chains $42

Feathers, leather, and chains?? No, we aren’t trying to prep your for your debut at the Folsom Street Fair. In this DIY jewelry-making class, metal artist (yes, we love how that sounds) Shana Astrachan will show you some of the basics of jewelry making that you can do at home. Skills include working with jump rings and other cold connections, making loops and dangles, and blackening & distressing chains. You will make two pairs of earrings and one necklace using a variety of materials including chain, feathers, lace & leather, and any other found objects you would like to use. Shana will also offer information on where to source jewelry supplies for future one.

supplies needed: none, but if you have a pair of small pliers, please bring them so you can use them in class (we have pliers for you if not). Also, if you have any found objects or charms that you would like to incorporate, please bring them along. You will have the option of buying more supplies in the class if you wish to make more jewelry.
