(Click on any image to enlarge)


Class Description:    

3 hour workshop. Class is on-going

Using safe studio practices, create a piece of jewelry in a single 3-hour session. 


•A found object is anything that inspires you to create something else. This class focuses on using unusual objects and designing a piece of jewelry around those objects. For example, a found object could be a piece of driftwood or tree bark, nuts or bolts, an illustration from a food can, or components from old jewelry that you no longer wear. The sky is the limit in this class - bring your imagination and objects and let the fun begin.
