Wire Jewelry (Ages 9-11)

Create wearable, wire art! You’ll learn wire manipulating and shaping techniques, then use traditional jewelry tools to make roses, scrolls, perfect loops, wrapped loops, headpins, cages, hooks and closures. Learn to strengthen and harden your designs, then add beads and learn finishing techniques. Students ages 12-14 will have the opportunity to soften wire and solder with the acetylene torch.
