Introduction to Wire Wrap Jewelry

July 28 @ 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Learn the basics of wire wrapping, a key skill in most jewelry making!

Class Description

In this class, Kathleen will teach students the basic wire wrap skill. The wire wrap is the key to most jewelry making. Once they know this skill, they’ll be able to make simple to intricate necklaces, earrings, bracelets, etc. They will leave class with a finished pair of earrings and the skills to rule the jewelry world. Earrings will all be different, based off of what they choose to design with.

About the instructor:

Kathleen recently opened up a store in Downtown Portsmouth called Rage Gems & Jewelry where she sells her handmade designs. Kathleen began making jewelry back in the early 2000s as she had two children under the age of two and she needed a hobby to help keep her sane. After many failed attempts at crafts such as crochet, mosaics, etc. she found that jewelry making was a perfect fit and hasn’t stopped since. She lived in Brooklyn NY for eight years and when there, she opened up a bead store and taught classes. Her jewelry has been seen on many celebrities during those years. She’ll be opening up a bead store in her shop this summer so people can come in and design their own jewelry.
