This great one-day class is a fast and creative class, ideal for beginners or those with limited experience, although experienced students are also welcome!
Students will practice making earrings (studs or drops) in copper or brass then make a pair (or more) of textured silver earrings in sterling silver. If time and interest allow, students can use the same techniques to create simple pendants to suspend on a chain or cord. They will learn cutting, texturing, forming and soldering and finishing techniques to make beautiful, wearable pieces for themselves or for gifting to a lucky person.
