▪ Let's Get Wild! Bracelet Workshop ▪

Take a walk on the wild side! Let your creative muse out of its cage! In this fun half-day workshop, you'll use a variety of metalworking techniques to transform shaped blanks cut from pure copper sheet metal into a fabulous safari themed bracelet.

Techniques employed in making your masterpiece include copper etching, wireworking, metal forming and finishing with a deep rich patina.

Skill Level

All skill levels are welcome.


Important: There is no need for you to go out and purchase any tools. All tools necessary for completing the project will be available at the workshop. However, some training venues have a smaller tool inventory than others, which may mean sharing.

For that reason, I recommend you bring your own small hand tools (i.e. pliers, cutters, favorite hammer, metal shears, etc.) if you have them. (Note: I usually have quality tools available for purchase at the workshop.) Contact me if you have any questions.

The following is a list of tools that we'll be using during the workshop.

  • Round nose pliers
  • Flat nose pliers
  • Chain nose pliers
  • Flush or semi-flush cutters that will cut up to 12 gauge wire
  • Ball peen or chasing hammer
  • Needle files
  • 6 inch ruler
  • Soft tape measure
  • Steel bench block
  • Sharpie® or other indelible pen
  • Hand towel
  • Polishing cloth
  • #000 Fine steel wool
  • Protective clothing such as a full apron. Cloth or plastic varieties work great.
  • Safety glasses
  • Rubber stamps (optional)

Please bring an old apron to protect your clothing!


Each training venue sets its own workshop fees. You'll find contact information for each venue on my Class Schedule page.

In addition to the workshop fee, a separate materials fee will be paid at the workshop to cover all materials needed to complete the project. The materials fee includes a full-color step-by-step written tutorial.

"Just plain fun! That's the best way to describe this class."
