The creation of jewelry comes in many forms: machine fabrication, assemblage, hand-forming, and soldering, just to name a few. Jewelry that is made by hand-forging has the sophisticated look of a hand-soldered piece, but is made with no heat at all. A hammer, mallet, steel block, and some ingenuity is all you need to create fabulous pieces.
In this workshop, you'll fabricate up to six hand-fabricated hammered earrings and necklaces that are light, modern and very high on style. We'll use hypo-allergenic, non-nickel brass components for you to create beautiful pieces that you can rock each and every day. As an extra-added component, we'll also have beautiful beads on-hand and will learn wire-wrapping technique that you can use to jazz up your jewelry if you so please. Whether adorned or starkly modern, big or small, these will be the pieces you wear every day.
