Bravo School Of Art: Silver Earrings
Above: Graphic logo for Bravo School of Art.
Join instructor Sharon K Novak to design and create a pair of unique sculptural earrings in sterling silver using basic jewelry/metalsmithing techniques and tools!
Design and cut your earring shapes out of thin-gauge silver. Enrich the surface with texture or words using hammers, stamps, files or punches. Bend, twist or 'form' your earrings dimensionally. Create movement and areas of interest by adding colorful glass or semi-precious beads with linear elements of wire that you learn to twist, coil, spiral and forge. Learn to ‘cold-connect’ shapes of copper or brass with wires or rivets to add greater contrast. Attach ear wires and wear your earrings home!
All tools and materials are provided. No experience required.
Date: Friday, May 3 10am - 3pm
