Workshop: Sterling Teardrop Earrings
Sunday, June 9: 11:00am-1:00pm
Learn to use pancake dies in a hydraulic press to create a pair of teardrop earrings in sterling silver. We'll go over sawing and filing techniques to get your earrings ready for texturing. Next, learn to use a variety of hammers to add the texture of your choice to your earrings. You will have the option to curve your earrings and choose your final finish. Add a patina to really make your design pop and add depth, or take your earrings to a high polish and make them sparkle.
Each student will leave with a finished pair of earrings ready to wear home or to give as a gift.
All materials, tools, and safety glasses will be provided for this workshop. Good eyesight and hand dexterity are a must. Please bring any eyeglasses needed for up close work and wear closed toed shoes for your safety.
This workshop is open to any student ages 14+.
This workshop has a max of 8 students.
This workshop is located in our NEW studio, located at 1365 Grandview Avenue, directly behind Figlio.
