$ 85  

You can never have enough earrings! Join me for this class to add to your collection of go-to styles that you can wear with any outfit.
Make up to three pairs of earrings (time permitting), in your choice of sterling silver or copper for the round earrings, and sterling silver for the swirly earrings.
You’ll be shown how to solder using a small butane torch and how to make graceful swirls to make lovely earring components. You will also learn how to make your own balled argentium silver earwires. Argentium is a type of sterling silver that is very tarnish resistant and anti-allergenic due to the low content of copper in this silver alloy.
Supply List $30 includes:All tools, materials and equipment needed to make these beautiful earrings will be provided. There is nothing to bring or buy ahead of time!
No prior experience is necessary. Must be at least 17 years old to sign up.
As we will be using torches, please tie back long hair, wear close toed shoes, and do not wear loose, flowing clothing.
The kit includes sterling silver or copper sheet, sterling silver and argentium wire, sterling silver beaded or rope decorative wire, and typed instructions.
