Connie Freedman and Dede Warren are back with an all new class... Handcrafted Connections with Wire! With so many ways of putting jewelry together, we thought we'd spend a full day focusing on building a solid base for assembling your designs. With wire as our main source, we will cover wire gauge and hardness, as well as the various types of wire that can be used in jewelry. We will start with the basics of  creating eye pins, head pins & jump rings, and expand to creating handmade chains, soldered links, hammered finishes, patinas and beyond. We'll also create hook & eye closures in a variety of styles, and as always we will share our quick & easy tips for learning to wire wrap! We'll bring a variety of wires, beads & gemstones, and rhinestone clasps, you bring your jewelry tools and let's spend the day Handcrafting Connections with Wire!
Beginners welcome!

Supplies & Tools:
Bring basic jewelry pliers & wire cutters, and a small hammer & anvil (if you have them)
