Just in time for Valentine's Day

Get Wired ~ With Your Own Handmade Sterling Silver Jewelry

Instructor: Raquel Soto-Escobar

In this workshop, we will make a 1920s style tassel neckalce and earrings. Just in time for Valentine's Day. Wire-wrapped necklaces are a hot item with designer boutiques and high-end stores, so this is your opportunity to make yourself a vintage style necklace and earrings. Learn from a fine art jeweler who has six years of experience. I will share with you the tools of the trade, techniques of wrapping, art of mixing and matching colors, design balance and how and when to oxidize your pieces. You can keep the creations for yourself, make a gift or even sell. Most wire-wrapped jewelry sells for well over $90 or more in department stores. Students should bring round nose pliers, chain nose pliers, and wire cutters; however, we will have some to share in class. Bring shoebox lid to workshop.
