Hammered Hoop Earrings

Studio Arts Workshop

Friday, April 24, 2020 - 10:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Code: 1K00AH
By Mïa Vollkommer

Release some stress while creating two pairs of earrings whose designs are realized through hammering—lots of it. Learn how to manipulate thick wires into a look reminiscent of sheet metal, and add texture accentuated with oxidization and patinas. Come ready to pound some metal, and leave with one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces that will make choosing earrings for your day much less stressful.

All wire is provided in a kit to be purchased in class ($20 value), and hand tools are available to share.  A supply list may be downloaded from this page no later than 2 weeks prior to the first session.

Instructor: Mïa Vollkommer

One 3.5-hour session
