Jewelry Workshops


Develop skills in making Handmade Jewelry from scratch by Gemologist and Jewelry Art Instructor, Mandi Wirtanen. She will be sharing her talent and 20 + years in silversmithing skills through a series of engaging workshops.

These introductory classes are perfect for anyone who wants to learn or refresh the fundamental skills involved in making jewelry and metalsmithing. From beginner to advanced, you will grow knowledge and develop skills and before long you will be creating one-of-a-kind Art Jewelry. We will be working in Sterling Silver and each student will be guided through the step-by-step process of making a variety of different projects. Skills covered will include sawing, shaping, filing, hammered textures, soldering with a gas fueled torch, and bezel setting a Cabochon stone. These exciting interactive classes will include many demonstrations and lots of hands-on work and you will be taking home your own handmade Jewelry. Tools will be provided for use in class. Additional metal, stones and tool kits are available for purchase after the class.
