Making Jewelry @NPL
Weeks 1 & 2

Chris makes a perfect eyepin!

I love making jewelry and my local library so much, that
I decided to run a second round of Jewelry Making 101!

I have a fantastically enthusiastic group of (lucky) thirteen women who are learning the basics. During last week's class I decide to share our adventure and took a few photos.

Week 1: Multi-strand Bracelet
Using cord and wire everyone created a single or multistrand bracelet. Some people took to it more quickly than others, but in the end we'll all get there!
Practice, practice, practice!

Week 2: Dangle Earrings
We stepped things up in the second class and learned to make eyepins which allowed everyone to make several pairs of fabulous dangle earrings! It was really exciting when everyone started to get the hang of it. But, my favorite part was when no one thought they'd be able to make their own
earwires out of headpins,
"Are you kidding?!", and then they did!
Such a great group!

Today we'll learn to make wire wrapped loops and connectors. Stay tuned for more...
