Hammered Texture Dangle Earrings

September 22 @ 11:30 am - 4:00 pm

Cdn $82.50 +Kit fee: $13, payable to the instructor the day of the class.

Course outline: Learn the basics of piercing and sawing to create intricate cut-outs in sheet metal, and practice your sawing technique with the jeweller’s saw. Then, design and create your own dangle earrings! Let your creativity shine by customizing your earrings with your own shapes and cut-out designs. Choose a finishing technique (e.g., polished, brushed, textured), and take home your one-of-a-kind handcrafted dangle earrings. Your earrings will feature a mixed-metals look, combining copper and/or brass with sterling silver, and will showcase your unique design of shapes, cut-outs, and textures!
