Chainmaille Owl Charm (2 days)

March 2 @ 12:00 pm - March 3 @ 4:00 pm

Cdn $70.00 +Kit fee: $10, payable to the instructor the day of the class.

Course outline: Make this super cute little owl charm entirely from jump rings with Gillian Clarke! This is a magical design created by Jodey Hathaway (of Bike Part Jewelry and The Ring Lord), which I am teaching with her permission.

We will use anodized aluminum jump rings in your choice of colours. The owl is 1″ tall and can be hung on a chain as a pendant, or will stand upright as a little sculpture. There is also a larger version. Extra kits will be available in both sizes.

Note: This class is scheduled Saturday, March 2, 12:00 – 3:00, and Sunday, March 3, 12:00 – 4:00pm.

Skill level: Intermediate

Prerequisite: Should be comfortable with basic chainmaille techniques.

Technique: Chainmaille (Half-Persian 3-in-1)

Bring to class: Two pairs of flat nosed pliers if you have your own. Tools will also be available in class. Bring magnification if you need it.

Of special note: the class patterns and instructions from our classes are for your personal use only. Please respect the intellectual property of our artists/instructors by not sharing, selling, or teaching the patterns you receive from the classes you take.
