Supercalafragalistic Jewelry at Harold Studio

Happy Friday to all our friends!

It has been a super week at the studio!  Classes are keeping busy and creating lots of wonderful jewelry.  

Reminders:

Please remember to wear close toed shoes and to keep your hair pulled back.  I know the temperatures are warming up and it is tempting to put on your favorite flip flops but your feet will not be happy with you if they get cut or burned by a piece of metal.  If you come in with open toed shoes you will not be allowed to work in the studio.  (I know, we are mean, but really we just care about you!)  :)

We will be closed this Sunday for Easter.

Upcoming Classes:

Jewelry 1:
Beginning Friday, April 25 2-5pm
Beginning Sunday, May 18 12-3

Jewelry 2:
Beginning Thursday, April 24 12-3
Beginning Tuesday, May 20 6-9

Tip of the Week
When checking for a gas leak with the torch, you can use water and dish soap.  If you get bubbles, you got a leak.  Turn off tanks and check your hook ups.

Do you have questions for us?  We would love to hear them.  Post them in comments on this blog or on our Facebook page and we will answer them in next weeks blog post!

Have a great week!

Tip of the Week

Happy Friday!  Lot's happening this week at the studio.  We had new Jewelry 1, 2 and 3 classes start and lots of people in during open studio.  I love to see the studio buzzing with activity!  

We are getting ready to add a torch in the back room along with some stools for the benches.  We hope to have the back room ready to go in the next week or two!  

Don't forget to sign in to open studio.  You can find the blue glittery book on top of the water cooler.

Tip of the week:  Put a small scrap of leather in your toolbox.  Leather is great for setting your piece on so that it doesn't get scratched.  If you find your piece of jewelry is getting hot when filing or using the flex shaft, use a piece of leather to hold onto it.  You can also use a tiny piece under a cabochon stone if you find that your stone is too low or is uneven.  We would love to hear your tips.  Comment below with your tips!!!



Love the colors of these enameled pieces created by Vera, Lori and Maria in Jewelry 3!

Deb did a great job die forming these pendants!

Jewelry 1 had a rocking night getting their riveted pendants complete.  Love the shapes!  Great job Will, Danielle, Abby, Erin, and Miriam!

Danielle working hard to get some fabulous pieces created!  Glad to see she is practicing safe jewelry making with her mask!

Had a fun knot ring workshop!  Didn't their rings come out great!

Katie and Nina created these awesome earrings in their first Jewelry 1 class.
Sneak peak at some of Danielle's new pieces.  Love her use of color!  Stay tuned for the finished product.

Cody is super relaxed and says have a chill weekend!

It has been another beautiful week in the studio!  Of course, when you are surrounded by fun people, amazing jewelry, and doing what you love how can it not be great!!  I am attaching a link to a cool exhibit at the Phoenix Art Museum.  It is a collection of pins that were worn by Madeleine Albright.  It runs through April 20 and admission is free on Wednesday afternoon/evening.
