From Glass Beads to Fine Jewelry
Learn to create organic, whimsical, and patterned glass beads and make your beads into wearable art jewelry. In the flamework studio, learn the secrets of melting soft glass in a torch to form beads. Experiment with a variety of shapes and surfaces. Then take your handmade, original beads to the metals shop where you'll learn to twist, turn, and hammer wire to showcase your jewels. All levels welcome. NOTE:The supply fee covers the metalsmithing part of this workshop. You can bring your own soft glass rods (COE 104) or purchase what you need from us during the class.
