What's Included

Learn the techniques you need to get started making your own jewelry with this hands-on workshop, such as creating links and drops from head and eye pins, working with jump rings, crimp tubes, and jewelry wire, and finishing a piece with a closure. We'll also explore project layout design and sizing. We'll be using premium Czech glass and other assorted embellishments with a wide selection of colours and styles for your choosing. Tools provided, but feel free to bring your own round pliers with wire cutters if desired. All materials, including beads and closure, are included in class cost. No experience necessary, and we're happy to help you finish your pieces if you find yourself struggling. We'll have a selection of basic and ornamental closures and head & eye pins available from the instructor's collection, which are a variety of metals, some of which may not have nickel contents labelled. If you have a metal sensitivity, you can purchase an upgrade to certified hypo-allergenic metals during registration and we'll purchase those on your behalf. Please pre-purchase this upgrade, as we might not have sufficient supplies available day-of-class if we don't know you're in need.
