Think it would be fun to make your own jewelry – either for yourself or as a gift?
Here’s a perfect opportunity to get started! This class will show you how to transform a simple piece of copper sheet (or what the jewelry industry refers to as a copper blank) into a beautiful jewelry component. You’ll learn how to punch holes, file, and sand the piece. And then we’ll get into the art of using liver of sulfur to patina the surface. Once we seal the patina, there’s just a quick assembly process and you will leave with a fabulous pair of earrings your friends will be impressed you made!
Even if you don’t consider yourself to be artistic, have no fear. There will be clear step-by-step written instructions to guide you through creating the example designs. Or if you prefer, you can generate your own design once you see the process. Jennifer Hanscom is a premier jewelry artist in the Valley. You will be learning from one of the best!
There are minimal tools and supplies involved, so you will be able to enjoy making more colorful copper jewelry on your own at home afterwards. When you register, a materials list will be sent to you. You also have the choice to purchase the tool kit required for this class. The cost for this kit is $10 payable to your instructor.
