▪ Riveting Pendants Workshop ▪

Saw 'em. Poke 'em with holes. Mix 'em up. Rivet 'em. Whatever 'em ... Wear 'em!

In this fun workshop, you'll explore surface textures and embellishments and learn how to cold-connect them together. Add beads and cut-outs to further embellish your designs.

Skill Level

Experience with jewelry hand tools is helpful. However, 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

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.
