In this hands-on class, learn to create beautiful wire wrap jewelry from a master wire sculpture artist.
Using semi-precious gemstones, fine copper wire and over two decades of experience, Russell Lawson guides each student to gain a working knowledge of essential wire wrapping techniques. Students will become familiar with the tools of the trade and add an exponentially utilitarian skill set to their artistic repertoire.
In this 2-hour session, students will create one complete wire-wrapped pendant with a semi-precious gemstone wrapped in fine copper wire. Fee for the instruction, supplies, knowledge and complete pendant is only $75. All materials will be provided.
Students will have the option to add-on a “to-go” kit for supplies to make an additional pendant at home, using their new skills (add $25 at checkout). The kit includes one semi-precious gemstone (gemstones will vary) and fine copper wire. Wire cutter is not included in add-on kit.
