Enameling Jewelry Workshop:
Make Your Own Colorful Enamel Earrings or Necklace
Iris Willow is offers private enameling jewelry workshops in her studio in San Francisco.
In her workshop, you’ll learn how to fuse colored glass to copper to create a colorful custom necklace or earrings.
Iris will demonstrate each of the steps of the kiln-fired enameling process and then you will have the opportunity to try it yourself, selecting your own jewelry shape, jewelry enamel colors and jewelry design and then kiln-firing and finishing your necklace or earrings. Iris will provide several example designs to give you ideas on what you can make. You’re welcome to make one of her designs or come up with your own using the materials provided. You’ll take home an enameled pendant necklace or enameled dangle earrings in the colors and shape you select.
