New Treasure Box Classes Starting

The last treasure box class was such a hit that we have added 2 classes to the calendar.  The class is 4 weeks and you will be given the materials at the first class.  You will then design and create a piece of jewelry using the materials we give you.  The class is tons of fun and we keep you guessing about what the materials will be until the start of the class.  Each class uses different materials so if you taken it before this class will be totally different!  Here are a couple of pictures of projects completed in the last treasure box class!

Treasure Box



We debuted the treasure box class at Harold Studio this month.  It was a huge hit!  The students were given a list of ingredients that they would use to create their piece of jewelry.  They were able to eliminate one of the ingredients and to add one ingredient of their choice.  The class lasted three weeks and started off with each participant creating their design.  The class concluded this past Tuesday and none of the students finished their design so we decided to add an additional week to future treasure box classes.  The students in this first class will be given a few studio hours to complete their projects.  Here are some pictures from all the fun!  Stay tuned for another post about their finished projects and their comments about the class!

Another view of Patricia's soldering pieces.  She is laminating brass and copper and putting the domed beads together to form hollow beads!  Don't forget to put at least 2 holes in your piece if you plan to make a hollow piece so it doesn't explode from the pressure.

Patricia also plans to put these two pieces together to form a bead.

How to make ear wires



Things you will need:



• Round wire .75-.85 mm thick or 21 gauge is pretty standard.

• Round nose pliers

• Chain nose pliers

• Bic pen



I like to make a ball at the end of my wires with a torch before, but this is not necessary.

Hope you enjoy!
