This course is open to ages 10 and up. Kids and adults welcome. Great for beginners! Sign up your crafty kiddo, or take it together! (Parents, this is a great opportunity to sneak in holiday shopping, or a little R&R during this hectic season.) Students will work side by side to design and create one of a kind ornaments or pendant. Basic jewelry tools and techniques will be introduced: sawing and piercing, riveting, hammers for texturing, and stamps for personalized messages, adding dates, poems, or names- the sky is the limit. Students will leave with a thorough introduction to metalsmithing and the jeweler's studio. Leave with a unique handmade gift for you or a loved one - handmade gifts are the best!
