Friday, February 7, 2020
2:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Tuition: $20 Materials: $10

Create your own beautiful gemstone ring with wire and faceted gemstone beads.This project is a little tricky at first, but once you learn this design you will easily be able to make these little rings for family and friends! You will learn some wire wrapping basics, how to use the appropriate tools, and how to add a patina to your finished jewelry to give an antique look. We will be using copper wire with a variety of stone beads to choose from.

About the Instructor: Elizabeth Engelke discovered the art of wirewrapping in 2015 when she stumbled upon pictures of beautiful wirework jewelry online while looking for a crochet necklace design. She has been learning and practicing wirewrapping and micro macrame jewelry making ever since. Elizabeth says, “I continually work to improve my skills and come up with new ideas to try.My work is sold at Ubetcha in Tower, and I have sold at various craft shows and outdoor markets in Ely, Tower, Biwabik, Virginia, and Hibbing.” Register Here
