Što ćete raditi

We will begin with a peek in the Boutique, featuring jewelry handcrafted by award-winning US artists, and a behind-the-scenes look at my working jewelry studio. I will also share some history of my 1890 building, including a copy of the handwritten deed to the original house. In the workshop you will use a combination of specialized jeweler's hand tools (the same that were used to make jewelry in the 19th century) and modern equipment to make your bracelet. First, you will hammer steel letter stamps to impress inspirational words, phrases, and designs of your choice onto a copper strip. Then, you will form the strip into a cuff bracelet with hammers and steel tools, oxidize (blacken) the metal, and polish to your desired finish. You will go home with a meaningful piece of jewelry that you created with your own hands. We limit the workshop to four students to guarantee lots of personal instruction, as well as the opportunity to get to know your classmates. You can relax and enjoy a glass of Virginia wine.
Other things to note
Our studio workstations are six feet apart and separated by plexiglass barriers. Hand sanitizer is available. Unfortunately, our Victorian-era building is not fully accessible to the handicapped.

I’ve been making art all of my life (drawing, graphics, photography) and now my current passion is jewelry making. I own Wear Ever Jewelry Handcrafted Boutique and Jewelry School in charming Alexandria, Virginia, where I love helping students create their own uniquely personal jewelry using traditional hand techniques. My Master’s degree in Jewelry/Metals and eight years of nationwide teaching equip me with a thorough knowledge of design and techniques. My own work has been honored by the jewelry industry’s prestigious Saul Bell Design Awards, Niche Awards, and MJSA Vision Awards. In this workshop, you will be personally guided through the jewelry making process by me and/or Beth, our experienced goldsmith. We are always thrilled when students are bursting with delight and a sense of accomplishment at their finished pieces.

This was an absolutely wonderful experience! The instructors were personable and inviting, and the space was beautiful. On a warm spring evening, it was nice to walk King St. and find dinner right after this fun jewelry making class!

Tess experience was really cool and the people hosting the experience were very professional and skilled. my hand got a little bit tired when I was making the bracelet because I’m weak but other than that it was pretty cool. Do you have to space your time out accordingly so that you don’t go overtime and be sure to have in mind what you want to write on your bracelet. I originally wanted to write in Iranian characters on my bracelet and when I found out that I could not write free handedly, I had to come up with something else to put on my bracelet so I wasted a lot of time. The host helped me a lot personally and I appreciated that a lot.
