Enamel is a fast and easy way to add bright flashes of color to jewelry. In this six hour workshop, students will have a chance to learn about and experiment with sifting techniques, enamel threads and stencils to create bold and beautiful enameled dangle-style earrings. We will use acetylene torches to fire the enamel so students can easily replicate this process at home without investing in specialized equipment.
Come spend a day learning a new technique and leave with several sets of dazzling new earrings and the confidence to start enameling at home!
