What you'll do
We will start with a welcome drink; a selection of local and international teas, coffee or juices and nibbles. After seeing some example pieces, you will then select what you would like to learn to make and chose the gemstones/crystals to go with it. Depending on your level of experience, I will then teach you the step by step wire weaving and wrapping methods to create your unique pieces. You can choose to create a pair of earrings, a bracelet, a pendant and/or a ring. Keep every piece you create. You will also have access to leather, non-tarnish silver-plated copper wire, brass wire and copper wire, plus 92.5 sterling silver earring hooks. If there's a special semi-precious stone or other material you have which you would like to use to convert into a piece of jewelry, then bring it along and we can create some magic!
Shonel & Juan José
I, (Shonel), created Solace Designs, which is a wirecraft jewelry business, in 2012. My skills involve manipulating, wrapping and weaving craft wire to make stunning and often one-of-kind pieces of fashion jewelry. I also incorporate semi-precious gemstones, crystals and leather into my pieces. I started my design company because of a very stressful period in my life. I credit jewelry making for saving my sanity! (so to speak) I can loose myself for hours creating new pieces. I take great pride in every piece of jewelry I've ever made/sold and I would love to pass on my knowledge to oth
