We are thrilled to have one of our most popular teachers return with an all new necklace for fall. Robin Dudley-Howes is back teaching her Baby Doll Necklace featuring an antique German doll. Robin's fascination with these miniature dolls has led to yet another eclectic mixed media necklace contrasting vintage with contemporary. In this project you will learn innovative wire shaping techniques, hammering, clasps, problem solving and sturdy wire construction with out using a torch! These techniques will elevate your future jewelry projects into new territory. As always Robin will do her best to make sure your necklace is finished in class.
