Making Jewelry with Meaning

The things you collect - the ticket stubs, the coins, the pieces of shell from a beach - hold meaning and significance, reminding you not only where you've been, but also where you're capable of going. Making these items into wearable pieces of art - amplifying their power to become amulets and talismans - is a rewarding experience that's easy to do.

Working with the most basic of tools, you will learn cold-connection jewelry techniques to expand your creative process. In addition to basics like creating jump rings and using a file, you will also:

  • Make your own hook and latch clasps
  • Cut windows from sheets of metal
  • Inlay designs into polymer clay
  • Incorporate concrete into your work
  • Achieve patinas with heat
  • Journal your thoughts onto faux bone
  • Turn paper pulp into realistic rocks
  • Create "time capsule" beads from Plexiglas
  • And much, much more!
Discover the rewards of making your own amulets and talismans by learning new techniques to drive your creativity in an entirely new direction.
