Please join us for four interactive workshops where you will work alongside Melody, Margaret and Jennifer to create yor own unique piece of jewelry art.



Learn to turn jump rings into a variety of beautifully textured chains. In this three-hour hands-on workshop, Margaret Crow will teach you the Byzantine, Foxtail, and Full- and Half-Persian chain patterns. She will also show you how to incorporate beads to make your chain maille jewelry designs more colorful - and uniquely your own.

Class Fee: $30.00
Materials Fee: $10.00
Class Limit: 8
Duration: 3 hours


In this lively interactive workshop, Jennifer Norris will share her highly effective approaches to choosing colors, shapes and structures when
designing jewelry to go with a special item of clothing. Each participant should bring a garment or fabric swatch to use as a starting point for
discussion. Jennifer will bring a varied assortment of beads to facilitate a faux shopping and decision-making spree. No purchases are required since no actual jewelry will be made in this morning's session. However, beads and
other supplies will be available for purchase.

Class Fee: $30.00
Materials Fee: none
Class Limit: 8
Duration: 3 hours


From Design to Reality

If you took Jennifer's "Interactive Jewelry Design" class this morning and wish to actually make the piece you conceptualized, come back after a break
for lunch and let her show you how.

Class Fee: $15.00
Materials Fee: retail price of materials chosen (advance estimate available)
Class Limit: 8
Duration: 3 hours


Melody MacDuffee's book on this technique won't be out until next spring, but you can learn how to do it now. Craft a one-of-a-kind necklace or pair
of earrings out of Swarovski crystals and sterling silver or 14k gold-fill wire as you master this new and surprisingly easy approach to making
intricate floral-filigree jewelry.

Class Fee: $30.00
Materials Fee: $25.00
Class Limit: 8
Duration: 3 hours
