Jewelry Making 101
A few weeks ago Groupon had an offer for a jewelry making class near us. I snapped it up for 1/2 off and Lauren had 4 days of creativity and fun. She used a small ceramic tile and a magazine cut out to make the butterfly pendant with a repurposed chain from 2 other pieces we had. Polymer clay and a metal stamp were used for the copper colored necklace. The 2 hooks were inserted before baking. The 2 other pendants were made by stamping and coloring a design on paper, glazing the work onto a scrabble tile finally using a low heat soldering iron to frame them. Totally fun and easy!
