Ring in the New Year with Specialty Classes!

Here is the latest schedule for our upcoming specialty classes, and we hope to be adding even more soon:

Wire-Wrapped Cabochon Pendant: Sunday January 22, 1 PM:

This is our most basic Wire class, with lots of tips and techniques on the different gauges and shapes of wire, the tools, and so much more, plus you'll leave the class with a beautiful pendant. Great class for beginners and for seasoned wire workers wanting to hone their skills.
Class fee: $35 plus supplies, $15 deposit required for registration.

Wire-wrapped Darlin's bracelet: Sunday, February 12, 1 PM:

This is another great beginner-level wire class.
Class fee: $35 plus supplies; $15 deposit required for registration.

Resinate: Creating beautiful resin jewelry; Saturday, February 25, 12 noon

Thanks to the input of the wonderful students who took our inaugural resin class, the instructor has revised this course and can now accomplish the class goals in one day. Each student will learn how to create resin jewelry components from start to finish, and leave the class with (at least) 3 pendants. Resin pieces need to cure for 72 hours prior to finishing, so the clean-up and finishing techniques will be demonstrated in class, and students may then (carefully) take their pieces home to complete the process after they cure.

Class fee: $55 (includes all supplies); $25 deposit required for registration.

Wire-wrapped Teardrop cabochon earrings: Sunday, March 11, 1 PM:

This class build on the skills learned in the cabochon pendant class; this is technically a beginner-level class, and no prerequisite wire skills are required, but because the stones are much smaller than the pendant, some folks find this class a little more difficult when first starting out.

Class fee: $35 plus supplies; $15 deposit required for registration.

Hope to see you soon!
