Metalsmithing: Hammered Wire Jewelry $56

In this jewelry making and metalsmithing class, learn to magically transform simple silver or gold fill wire into beautiful, personalized, and long-lasting hoop earrings and a hairpin. Jewelry maker Shannon Berke will introduce you to the tools and foundational skills for working with metal to make jewelry, as well as set your wheels in motion for establishing your own home jewelry studio. Using a hammered wire technique, you will have the opportunity to pound out all of your aggression, while at the same time create a few simple yet elegant jewelry pieces for your collection. And whether you are designing jewelry for yourself, bff, gf, lover, or family members, this class will prepare you for unlimited adornment and gift giving! Each student will leave with one pair of hoop earrings and one hairpin.

Supplies Needed: None. We will provide all jewelry making materials for this class. You will have the choice of crafting the hoop earrings from either sterling silver or gold fill wire.
