Today the blog is brief, as my relatives are here for the holiday.
Jewelry Class is a blast. Two and an half of hours of fun and creativity. Class is held every Saturday from 2:00 to 4:30 p.m., the goal, to go home with a completed project. Here we see a sample of some of the jewelry-making supplies / demonstration materials supplied by Little Shop of Artists.
From Left to Right and Back to Front:
Simple Chain and Pendant, samples of bracelets, Chainmaille Necklace Earring Set, Simple Drop Earrings, "Illusion" Necklace and Earring Set. A variety of tools, pliers, mandrels, findings and a selection of wire. Yes, we can make jewelry with these items. (Not shown, components, stones, beads and drops and charms).
Tools, all that is really required is a pair of pliers or two and perhaps a wire cuter and a mandrel, if you wish to wind you own wire for jump rings.
Clockwise from the top: Flat-Nosed pliers, graduated mandrels, Chain-Noses pliers and a straight mandrel in 5mm.
Projects include: Earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and simple techniques are taught.
