11/13/18 Resin Charm Making - Optional Add On for Metalsmithing with Jean Skipper
During Metalsmithing with Jean Skipper on Tuesday, November 13th, guests will have the option of creating three one-of-a-kind solid brass round charms in which they'll capture the words and treasures of their choosing in resin.
Please note that this listing is for the creation of three charms. Guests will then use them independently in their own creations that may include pendants, bracelets, earrings, or as embellishments in mixed media works of art, or they'll be able to incorporate them into handmade jewelry in future classes with Jean. (These charms themselves will require a twenty-four hour curing time after class.)
From safe tool and chemical usage, to metal preparation, to the layout and design of each charm; Jean will present you with easy instructions and hands-on assistance during every step of the process. She’ll also provide you with all of the supplies and tools that you’ll need to complete your beautiful resin charms.
It will take approximately one hour to complete the layout of your resin charms. This is a “drop-in-class” meaning that you may begin your project anytime between 5:30 and 7:00, and finish at your leisure. While reservations aren’t required, they are appreciated, and they may be made by here or by calling 910-245-4129. (Please Note: While Metalsmithing and Jewlery Making with Jean will continue until 8:30, we ask that all resin projects are begun by 7:00 unless prior arrangements are made.)
For groups of five or more, Jean will be happy to host this class in the evening or at a time that works best for your schedule.
Jean Skipper is an artist from Vass, North Carolina, who creates mixed-media storytelling jewelry. Her work can be whimsical or sentimental, and sometimes it’s a bit of both. Hand applied words and textures play an important role in most everything that she creates. These details help to tell the story of each piece, and they encourage the wearer to share their personal memories and stories.
