Jewelry Making @NPL
Weeks 3 & 4

Catherine shows off a button dangle!

We finished up our Jewelry Making class last week.
It was so much fun and everyone learned a lot!

Here are a few photos...
I finally figured out how to get them off of my phone.
Seriously...I am not smart enough for my smart phone.

Supplies for our last class.

During our third class everyone learned to make a wrapped loop. Can you say frustrating?!

Jean working on her charms.

For the last class everyone could use either a simple eye pin loop or wrapped loop to create charms for their pendant.

It turns out that the most complicated part of the last class was trying to teach everyone how to make sliding knots with their leather cord. Sometimes the simplest things are actually the trickiest to explain.

I brought along a small anvil, copper and brass charms, files, hammers and a  letter number punch set so everyone could give metal stamping a try. That was a lot of fun!

Supplies for metal stamping.

I'm happy to say that everyone had a great time
and is looking forward to making more jewelry!

Thanks to everyone that participated and
to the Friends of the Library too!
