Hammered Hoop Earrings

Studio Arts Workshop

Sunday, April 28, 2019 - 2:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Code: 1K00JM
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.
