Students will learn to use jeweler's pliers and a wide range of techniques to construct three pairs of earrings suited to their own individual creative styles. They draw upon more than 50 different semi-precious gemstones and silver-plated spacers and charms as well as nickel-free wire. Each session lasts about one hour and includes the use of all tools.
Ambrosia Bead Shop
Instead of pictures, the goldenrod walls of Ambrosia Bead Shop hold long strands of multicolored beads that shimmer under the glare of tiny track lights. The selection—which includes semiprecious gemstones, Swarovski crystals, and freshwater pearls—constantly changes: each month, the shopkeepers supplement their wares with new or exotic materials. The shop also hosts jewelry-making classes that cover a range of topics, from beading to metalwork to taming a swarm of fireflies so they form a tiara.
