Have you always wanted to make your own jewelry?

Each of these is the perfect reason to join Jean Skipper for Metalsmithing and Jewelry MakingYour Way at ARTworks Vass!
Class will be held on February 18th between 5:30 and 7:30. You're encouraged to pursue the project or projects of your choice, and 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 original work of wearable art.
During your time with Jean, you'll learn about safe tool usage, metal preparation, cold connection techniques, finishing, and polishing. Hand stamping, texturing, wire wrapping, and building chains from wire are also possibilities. The sky is the limit, and you're encouraged to contact Jean directly at email@example.com or 910-528-1109 to discuss your project and goals prior to class.
Whether you’re creating for yourself or a friend; the piece that you make in this class will be treasured for a lifetime.
Because of the individualized attention that each guest will receive during this session, class size will be limited to four students. Reservations are suggested, as many of our classes sell out quickly. Walk ins are also welcome as space and supplies permit. Register here or call 910-245-4129.
This class is appropriate for guests with all levels of experience. Beginners are welcome, as are those age 14 and older.
For groups of five or more, Jean will be happy to host this class in the evening or at a time that's convenient.
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 history.
