5/18/21 - Abandoned Heirlooms - Jewelry Design and Metalsmithing with Jean Skipper
Join us on Tuesday, May 18th, between 1:30 and 4:30 for Abandoned Heirlooms with Jean Skipper.
During class, you'll begin to transform the Abandoned Heirlooms just waiting to be discovered at the bottom of your Jewelry Box or Junk Drawer. Grandma's Beads and Buttons? Crushed Pennies? Jewelry from your childhood? Cracker Jack Charms? All of these and more may be honored in your one-of-a-kind creations!
From Sweet and Simple to Over-the-Top Funkiness, the photos here barely scratch the surface of all that's possible.
Bring your treasures. Class will be held on Tuesday, May 18th, and we'll begin with an assessment of all that you have, and a discussion of the manners in which you may honor them in your new creations. Based on the direction that guests would like to take, Jean will customize her demonstrations to meet the needs of the group. Your time with her will always include easy instructions and hands-on assistance during every step of the process.
You'll learn about safe tool usage, metal preparation, texturing, hand stamping, cold connection techniques, finishing, and polishing. She’ll provide you with all of the tools that you’ll need to complete your projects, and the cost of your class includes a $10 credit toward purchasing any additional beads and baubles from her collection that you'd like to add to your work.
Are you a minimalist who doesn't have a single Abandoned Heirloom in your possession? Fear not; you can still participate in class using our optional Abandoned Heirloom Grab Bag available for purchase when you register for class. Grab Bags will contain a wide variety of forgotten jewelry, parts, and pieces for you to use creatively. Also, for your shopping pleasure, found objects and jewelry supplies are always available for purchase at ARTworks Vass.
