What's Included

Create beautiful wire-wrapped pendants from premium polished & drilled semi-precious stones. We'll cover basic wire-working techniques to create harnesses, end caps, and bails to turn our stones into wearable jewelry. Participants will create and keep two medium or three smaller-sized gemstone pendants, choosing from a variety of semi-precious stones, wire options, and optional glass or gemstone embellishments. Tools provided, but feel free to bring your own round pliers with wire cutters if desired. All materials, including gemstones, are included in class cost. No experience necessary, and we're happy to help you finish your pieces if you find yourself struggling. You can purchase additional stones to take home with you for later projects either during registration or with cash or credit card before or after class for $7.00 each (one medium or two small sized). Stone pendants make timeless, classic jewelry pieces, great for gifts!
