ONSITE: Wire Jewelry

Learn the wire techniques that will help you create unique art pieces! Bend, shape, loop, and spring wire into form. We will add texture and create shape with traditional jewelers’ tools. Learn to taper with the rolling mill, cold forge a wedge with a hammer and soften metal with a torch. This class will give you the skills you need to create wire jewelry of your own design.
