New Workshops In Raleigh-Ornamentea

New Workshops Open for Registration in Raleigh
at Ornamentea!
Hello jewelry friends!  I am excited to share my new fall workshops!  They are just in time for the holiday season!  Cynthia, the owner of Ornamentea (the amazing jewelry and crafts store in Raleigh) have been working behind the scenes to bring these workshops to you!  These are a bit longer than our previous workshops, because we pack in a lot of techniques!  You will learn metal texturizing, working with fibers, setting eyelets, working with holes for lining up placement in your pieces, and if time allows, I will show you how to hand forged ear wires, which is a must for artisan jewelry!

And I didn't even mention enameling, and working with decals.  For the earring class, we dive into learning about the magic of transparent enamel, how to layer them, and which metals can be used.  This is where you have options with color, where you can truly paint with fire, create stunning shades, all your own.

For the Poet Link bracelet, we work with texturizing metals as well, and concentrate on  decals.  You will leave with the knowledge of how to add these to your designs, personalizing your work.  Decals really take your work up a notch, and allow an amazing array of options.  Please see my article on newsstands now, in Belle Armoire Jewelry to learn more about the process.  This workshop is a great way to learn hands on, and understand the placement of the flame and firing times which can be hard to learn otherwise.
