Husband-and-wife team Crissi and Chris Ballas cultivate a supportive environment for learning about and creating jewelry at Wicks & Stones, replete with an opulent, on-trend collection of beads and wire. The three-hour earring-making class arms amateur jewelers with the know-how and supplies needed to twist media such as string, wire, and sparkling beads into three pairs of earrings for dangling from your own lobes, gifting to a friend, or dressing up your taxidermic retriever for a tea party. Pupils make use of fire polish from the Czech Republic and Swarovski crystals to stitch the initial pair, while wire wrapping embraces a crystal drop for the penultimate pair. The class concludes with instruction on the hammering technique, which is then administered upon sterling silver wire for a final take-home set. Students should call ahead to reserve a spot in a forthcoming class.

Wicks & Stones

With the help of her husband, Chris, Crissi Ballas put her heart and soul into opening Wicks & Stones nearly a decade ago. Blossoming from a simple idea, the business grew into a gallery, jewelry and supply store, workshop, and candle emporium. Today, Wicks & Stones offers a wide variety of classes, from basic beading to stitching bracelets out of high-grade tennis balls. For gift-givers, the shop stocks 100% soy candles, a smattering of Swarovski crystals and other semi-precious stones, and displays packed with already-assembled jewelry.
