Jewelry Making & Mosaic Collage – Section 2

  • Dates: Monday, 2:30-4:30pm, 10 Weeks
  • Tuition: $90
  • Instructor: Carol Graves

Jewelry Making classes have both beginners and people who have been taking for years. Beginners are taught how to make earrings, bracelets and necklaces. Then, each week they learn a different project such as floating necklaces, button bracelets, wire wrapping, polymer clay beads, cords, crocheting with beads, memory wire and silver clay, if desired. Those who are not interested in a certain project can work on anything of their own liking. People in the class who are non-beginners can chose to work with seed beads on a loom, make polymer clay beads using canes and make copper metal pendants. Helping with designs and color choice is a major part of the class. Students may also focus on repairing jewelry (excluding soldering).

Learn how to create a colorful mosaic piece of garden art, a mirror, hot plate, or tray to match your decor – this is an introduction to mosaic collage. Use tools to break dishes into shapes and sizes, grout them together, and create your own special artistic piece. The entire process is both relaxing and fun.
