Sarah Thompson | Tendril Earrings or Pendant | Tuesday, January 30th, 2018 | 9 am until 4 pm


New class!!! A beautiful organic pair of earrings that are not only stunning to wear but light. In class you will learn how to shape heavier-gauged wire with a more flowing organic movement. We will also learn the basics of layering your wire for more depth and detail to the over all design as well as the little details that elevate the design to a more professional quality such as creating pointed swirls, beveling our hammered wire with our files and achieving a high polish. This would also make a great pendant. The goal in class is to make one complete earring but you will still have to weave together the other side.

Out of stock

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