Learn how I make my jewelry.

I will show you how to connect two shards together with wire and how the necklace chain attaches to the shards.

We will first learn to draw the patterns and then learn how to get them on the shards. I will bring my metallic markers for you to try. Wear it home or give it as a special gift.


You Bring:

  • Wood burning tools
  • Pair of small long nose pliers
  • Ink dyes, if you like
  • sketching paper and pencil


Double Shard Necklace

4 hours


I will bring the shards, all the

findings and directions for the patterns.
