About this Event

Jewellery Making Workshop with Michelle Ross: 8 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Michelle will share how her design process started and how it differs from many jewelers. Though her artistry has evolved, her process begins in the same way. It starts with sourcing and manipulating materials. The nature of what she’s working with, be it natural or manmade, will influence the final design. She looks at the drape, rigidity and movement in materials then works with their characteristics to help design each piece. This practice comes from her training in textiles and fashion design where fibers or fabric used directly affects the quality, fit and feel of the piece. We want you to touch it, feel it and interact with it.

At this workshop, you will learn basic techniques through the use of vintage and antique components of your choosing. Once you've chosen the pieces that inspire you most, you will create a unique pendant necklace or keychain.

All materials included. No experience is necessary. Space is very limited. Details and more at: makejoy.co
