2/4/20 Evening Session - Etched Metal Cuff or Necklace with Jean Skipper
Just in time for Valentine's Day! Create for or with the one you love.
On Tuesday, February 4th, from 5:30 until 7:30, you'll create a one-of-a-kind etched solid copper cuff bracelet in ¼ inch or ½ inch width OR a necklace, bookmark, or keychain using the same piece of metal. These pieces will be a touchstone and reminder of the names, words, quotes or song lyrics with special meaning to both the wearer and maker. Images on them may be hand drawn or stamped, and they may be sized to fit both men and women.
If you find that you’re hooked, and that one piece just isn’t enough, you may add a second piece at the cost of $20. If you'd prefer to create a wider bracelet or a different shape of necklace... you’ll also have the opportunity to purchase additional metal components during class.
You can expect to learn about safe tool and chemical usage, metal preparation, drawing, stamping, forming, polishing, and finishing. Jean will present you with easy instructions and hands-on assistance during every step of the way. She’ll also provide you with all of the supplies and tools that you’ll need to complete your beautiful piece of jewelry.
Whether you’re creating for yourself or a friend; the piece that you make in this class will be treasured for a lifetime.
Reserve your seat in class online here, or by calling 910-245-4129. Drop Ins at the last minute are also welcome as time and supplies permit.
For groups of five or more, Jean will be happy to host this class at a time that works best for your schedule.
