NEW YEAR's DAY intention setting workshop!! Sunday January 1 // 1 - 4 PM - ring OR pendant
Celebrate the transition to a brand new year with a relaxed and therapeutic creative afternoon. In this workshop, you'll join a small group of amazing & thoughtful humans, as we share our intentions & inspirations for 2023. You'll be fully guided in channeling that energy into a meaningful piece of jewelry (MADE BY YOU!!!) to hold close; to ground you and protect you through whatever comes your way!
If you feel drawn to this workshop for ANY reason - IT IS FOR YOU. It is for feeling excited and *hopeful* about what the future holds. It is for letting go to make space for magic. It is for giving your spirit a good shake (think: dog after bath - oooh that feels better) and your heart a boost!
Your finished piece will be an expression of the things you are reflecting on and moving toward - dreams, ideas, mantras, feelings, people, places, goals, energy - absolutely *anything* that feels inspiring and impactful to you. We can incorporate imagery, symbols, textures, letters, shapes or gemstones into your design - the sky's the limit! No one else in the world will EVER have the same ring or pendant - pretty freaking cool, right???
If you would like to use this opportunity to make a sentimental and ultra-thoughtful gift for a loved one, come on down!!!!!! That would be AMAZING.
This is a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental space, so come prepared to uplift, encourage, and celebrate one another!!
Looking for something new and different to explore? Join me for a fun, creative workshop where you will be fully guided through the process of making your very own one-of-a-kind adornment!
Beginning with a slice of jeweler’s wax, we will use simple hand tools to create a basic ring form. Then it gets fun! You can add texture, special details, or a nice smooth finish. Whatever your vision is, we'll make sure you leave with something beautiful and well-made that you'll be proud to wear. After the workshop, your wax model will be professionally cast in solid sterling silver (or gold if you're feeling fancy!), and lovingly hand-finished & polished.
NO prior experience is required. Please note that this is *not* a technical workshop for jewelers - we will not be delving into advanced carving techniques, the lost wax casting process, where to send your work out for casting, suppliers, mold making, finishing, etc.
The workshop fee includes all tools and materials required to make one ring in sterling silver, up to 5 mm wide. Looking for something a little bolder / heavier / more statement-y? Rock a wide band / signet ring for an additional fee.
*Please note: this is a group workshop, open to anyone - if you prefer to ensure that it's just you and your pals, check out the private workshop listing!*
