Young people love jewelry, and enjoy learning to make it. In this class, we will cover how to make chains, clasps, rings, how to solder silver, and how to set small semi-precious stones. There is plenty of opportunity for individual creative expression and questions. Young artists will leave this class with finished pieces for themselves or to give away as gifts.
There is a $10 lab fee to cover consumables, in addition to payment for the materials used.
