In this class students will receive step by step instruction on how to craft a beautiful cocktail ring using wire wrapping techniques.
During the first portion of the class students will focus on a basic design using sterling silver wire and Swarovski crystal. Then it will be time for students to practice what they’ve learned! There will be a choice of wire (sterling silver, rose gold, gold filled) and students will be able to pick from a variety of centers such as sea glass or Swarovski crystal to make a one of a kind design. Students will also learn the purpose and use of different tools such as ring mandrels and jewelry pliers. Students will take their creation(s) home as a beautiful gift for themselves or someone else!
