Pearl Dangle Earrings with Sarah Sindler of KING RELD
April 2, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Date: Saturday, April 2, 2022
Description: In this one-session workshop, students will learn a wire wrapping technique to connect beads and pearls. Each student will create a pair of handmade earring hooks to complete their projects. Throughout the workshop students will be introduced to using a draw plate to reduce the gauge size of wire. That wire will be used to make your wire wrapped bead chain.
Tuition: $80 + $10 materials fee
Materials: Students are encouraged to bring at least 10 pearls or beads to use in their project, but they will be available to purchase directly from the instructor in class. Please bring safety glasses and/or magnification glasses if you would like. You are also encouraged to bring your favorite hand tools like a saw frame, round-nose and chain-nose pliers, flush cutters, needle files, and flexshaft burrs/accessories. As always, Contemporary Craft has these items available to all students. All other materials will be provided.
Location: Contemporary Craft (5645 Butler St., Pittsburgh, PA 15201)
