Metal Pendant Jewelry
Arts & DIY
The focal piece of any necklace is a gorgeous pendant and there don't have to be diamonds in your design to make your piece eye-catching.
To get started you will learn basics of beading from one of our talented teaching artists. Then, expand on those skills to use rivets, beads, and wire to make your necklace one of a kind. Participants may bring in their own design ideas to incorporate or find some inspiration in our collection of unique materials.
Each student will leave with a unique design to wear home!
