Art Deco Peacock Earrings
Studio Arts Workshop
Saturday, December 1, 2018 - 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
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.
