8/16/19 Resin Charm Making - Class with Jean Skipper - Afternoon Session
During this focused session of Metalsmithing and Jewelry Making with Jean Skipper, on Friday, August 16th, from 2:00 until 4:00, guests will have the opportunity to create three one-of-a-kind solid brass round charms in which they'll capture the words and miniature treasures of their choosing in resin.
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.
Please note that this class is for the creation of three charms. Guests may use them during future classes or independently in their own creations. Pendants, bracelets, earrings, or embellishments in mixed media works of art are all possibilities! (The charms made during this class will require a twenty-four hour curing time after class, and a jump ring for hanging will be provided for each.)
Examples of Jean's Resin Charms and her Resin Jewelry may be seen in the photos on this page. Whether you’re creating for yourself or a friend; the pieces that you make in this class will be treasured for a lifetime. (If you find that you’re hooked, and that three charms just isn’t enough... you’ll also have the opportunity to purchase additional charm supplies during this class at a cost of $8 each.)
Reservations are encouraged for this class, as we expect it to fill quickly. They may be made online here or by calling 910-245-4129.
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.
