Explore Earrings - 13th July

Explore Earrings - 13th July


Explore earrings in this one day workshop with Alys. You could make three stand alone pairs or a little curated collection to wear together. You'll start but creating a pair of simple silver studs or ear climbers - shaping and texturing the metal and solding on a secure stud pin. Then move onto a pair of hoops earrings, learning to measure and cut the wire, adding a hammered texture detail and a secure stud fastening. You'll finish by creating a pair of dangly earrings in Alys signiture style or to your own design  - cutting the shape from sheet metal,, adding surface details and decorations and creating a pair of bespoke hand formed ear hooks. We might even have to time to create a little ear cuff to complete your set. As ever we are flexible so if you want to focus on one style for the entire day we can support you in that.
