Wire-Wrapped Earrings 101
The weather's getting warm, the sun is shining, and it's time to get ready to wear those spring and summer dresses. In our opinion, there is no better way to quickly spruce up any outfit (casual or dressy) than with a gemmed-out pair of beautiful earrings. You've seen these designs and have loved them. Now we're going to teach you to make them yourself.
Wire-wrapping is an essential part of jewelry-making for any designer. Securing your jewelry, while making it more beautiful with wraps is the differentiating factor between simple jewelry, and truly modern, elegant jewelry.
In this 2 hour course, you will learn to make a hammered hoop base from wire that you will then wrap with fabulous gemstones. Sky's the limit with color and design.
By the end of the class, you'll have plenty of practice, and at least two lovely pairs of earrings to wear home.
For the course, we will provide all tools and supplies. If you have special beads you'd like to use (preferably small rondelle or round shaped faceted beads, no larger than 6mm in size), be sure to bring them with you for your creation.
Each class is a 2-hour session.
