Nested Stone Earring Workshop - for ages 10+

Nested Stone Earring Workshop - for ages 10+

Date: Friday, August 9, 2019 6-8pm
Workshop & Materials Fees: $35 (plus materials fee: $10 for Sterling Silver / $30 for gold)

In this workshop, Shannon Parker of Wisdom River Designs, will walk students through the basics of wire wrapping stones & creating handmade, precious metal, ear wires. Students will be able to choose the type of metal that they work with and handpick their stones to fit their taste. Wire wrapping techniques will be demonstrated on top drilled & center drilled stones. This type of wire wrapping gives the illusion that the stone is held in place by a ‘nest’. Earwires will be hand formed - and two styles will be demonstrated. Students will walk away with at least one completed pair of earrings, and if time allows, possibly a second.
