In this fun half-day workshop you'll learn how to make a spring-based pin with a catch, and then add a variety of wiredoodles, beads, pearls or charms to fashion a wonderful scarf or lapel pin. You'll then "age" your jewelry in liver-of-sulfer and polish it to a brilliant shine! These pins are wonderful accessories and they make terrific gifts as well!
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.
Please bring any special beads you'd like to use in your designs.
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.
"I really appreciate the take-home tutorial with pictures!"
