Jewlery Making 1: The Art of the Earring
March 10, 2011
You are invited to fun-filled nights of inspiration, instruction and enjoyment at our series of evening workshop events. Each Night Out @ New Art will give participants the opportunity to learn and try out a specific technique, art or craft. these events are designed to be festive and hands-on, so bring a friend and try one! Yummy snacks always provided.
Learn from artist/jewelry-maker Lisa Monahan how to use the tools of the trade to design and create fabulous earrings. Lisa - who sells her jewelry throughout New England, including the DeCordova and ICA museums - will present an overview of bead styles; findings ("jeweler's hardware"), and elegant wire-wrapping techniques. Choose from a beautiful selection of beads and findings--you will create two pairs of earrings to take home. Additional materials for more elaborate or future creations will be available for purchase.
