Findings Workshop: Earring Wires, Swan Hooks, S Clasps & Eye Pins


If you have been wondering how to save money while making your own handmade jewelry, then this class is for you! Not only will you save money, but you will learn how to make your own eye pins, and incorporate beads to make a bracelet. Once you learn how to make a few different shapes, you will only be limited by your own imagination and creativity! In addition, you will learn how to wrap top-drilled beads. You will also learn how to make your own swan hooks and S clasps, and earring wires. You will leave this class with a finished bracelet, and earrings that you designed!
