Examples of the lovely metal jewelry that can be created!
This class will show students the possibilities of handcrafting your own metal jewelry while exploring the idea of creating a small business. Campers will sketch ideas in their own sketch books, practice using tools and handing metal before creating several pieces of copper jewelry, including a pendant, ring and earrings. There will be a trip to a local jeweler's studio, where we’ll speak with a professional jeweler and see her creations. At the end of the week, we’ll set up our own jewelry store to display students handcrafted pieces and business names for parents and visitors.
