Class Description

In this 8 session course students will learn a number of approaches to making hoop earrings. We will go over various versions of both hinged and tension posts, and the appropriate catches to secure them. Demos will include making hoop wires and catches for hinges and tension posts, and work hardening metal earrings. After practicing theses techniques, students will be ready to apply functional mechanisms to their own earring designs. 

This course is perfect for students with basic jewelry fabrication experience wanting to refine their technical skills and focus on hoop earring designs and mechanisms.

Previous soldering and jewelry fabrication experience is required.

Supply kits will be available.

Class size is 4 – 6 students.
