Description

In this beginner class you will learn the approach to creating hand-stamped jewelry using copper, brass, or nickel discs and niobium ear wires! Make a stunning pair of texture earrings or a hand-stamped pendant with a word that speaks to you.

Starting out, you will learn different hammering techniques to texture the metal while deciding the design, shape, and texture of your piece. Think of a word you want to stamp on your necklace and what texture you would like, too. Your instructor will walk around and guide you as you create a hand-stamped item that is custom for you. We will finish off by adorning the piece with a wire-wrapped bead and with a chain or ear wires.
