About this Event

Have you ever thought about learning to make your own jewellery? Now is the perfect chance! Never made jewelry before? All skills are welcome!! In this class you will receive instruction from a local goldsmith with over 20 years experience in the jewelry industry.

You will receive step by step instruction on how to create your very own sterling silver (.925) toggle necklace. You can customize the length (up to 24"). We will guide you through the process of creating your very own toggle clasp. Choose from a wide assortment of beads and stones to personalize your creation to make it truly unique. In the process we will discuss the different properties of metal. As well as how to care for your new sterling silver piece of jewelry. Class instruction will include beginner wire working, toggle design and manufacturing, metal surface treatments and textures. Students are encouraged to bring any crafting pliers they may have, but extras will also be provided. 

Skills covered in the class:

- basic wire working

- opening and closing jump rings properly

- basic sterling silver storage and treatment knowledge

- surface texturing and metal manipulation skills as we will be creating the toggle ourselves
