Colorful Tribal Necklace at Weekend with the Wire Masters

On Thursday, Oct. 28, I'll be teaching how to make a stunning necklace like this one at Weekend with the Wire Masters in Dana Point, CA.
I'm really looking forward to this event because we'll be staying in a gorgeous hotel, right on the beach, with beautiful pools and hot tubs and spa services. And great food, I'm sure! Orange County is just gorgeous at this time of year—a bit nippy in the evenings, but balmy and delightful throughout the day. Anyway, the classes I'll be offering are lots of fun as well. Pictured above you see the Colorful Tribal Necklace. In this workshop, you will learn to make:
• Jump rings and sturdy figure-8 links
• Coil-wrapped beads
• Caged beads
• Double-wrapped eye-pin loops
• Variety of wire charms: spirals, leaves, bead dangles
• A handmade hook clasp
• A handmade chain
And we'll put it all together to make a beautiful necklace you can wear with pride! Time permitting, we'll also use liver of sulfur to "artificially age" our jewelry and polishing techniques. I'm really looking forward to teaching this workshop!
The class is nearly full, but we do have space for a couple more students. If you're interested, I hope you join us for a lovely day by the ocean, making gorgeous wire jewelry.
Happy wrapping,
