As a kid, I delighted in blowing the fluff off dandelions and watching pinwheels spin in the breeze.  


As an adult, I find myself re-creating that child hood wonder with metal and fire.


Revisit the feeling of childhood whimsy, and learn make your own kinetic earrings with a spinning daisy pinwheel in the center.


But don’t be alarmed when friends and strangers come up to give your earrings a spin!

Out of stock

I'm interested in this class. Please add me to the waiting list.
