Lost an earring and not sure what to do with the one left over? Or have a broken necklace just sitting in your jewelry box? In this workshop, Hawkly will teach you the basic wire working techniques that can be used to create a variety of necklaces, bracelets and earrings and potentially repair or incorporate your pieces into something wearable again!
