Art Deco Peacock Earrings

Studio Arts Workshop

Saturday, December 1, 2018 - 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Code: 1K00CX
Earrings by Mïa Vollkommer

It's not difficult to understand why the regal peacock was an ideal symbol of the luxurious aesthetic of the art deco period. Examples of the bird and its audacious plumage can be found in the painting, sculpture, jewelry, and graphic design of the time. Create your own bit of peacock-inspired elegance with earrings incorporating Swarovski crystals and wire-working techniques.

A kit costing $30 containing the beads and wire needed for the project is available to purchase in class, and Studio Arts hand tools are available to borrow.
