Join artist Amy Hanna at the home studio of Jenny Doh on Saturday, August 20, 2011. Bring your Granmere's jewelry box with old broken jewelry bits and bobs ... favorite old tin type photos, religious relics, rosary and medals. Bring whatever is special and speaks to you.

SUPPLY LIST: Amy will bring a limited amount of pendants, beads, chain and wire available for purchase. However, she will not have enough to supply each person completely so please make sure to bring your goodies as follows:
- Jewelry Pliers: Both round & flat nose. Bring two pairs of flat nose if you have them.
- Wire Cutters: Bring flush cutters, suitable for cutting 16-gauge wire.
- Wire: Bring 4 feet each of 22, 24, and 26-gauge wire (sterling, brass, copper, or metal) that can fit through your beads. Bring plenty of inexpensive wire to practice on.
- Chain: Bring 2 feet of your favorite chain - like old rosaries, bits of old necklaces, watch chain, and new large silver links or gold chain.
- Beads & Buttons: Bring your favorites - like natural semiprecious gems, rhinestone buttons, and old beads from vintage necklaces. Local bead stores or shows are good places to find beads and buttons.
- Necklace clasp: Bring your favorite. Vintage rhinestone clasps are nice but hard to find, and sterling silver hooks are also a good option.
- Pendant: This will be the focal point so pick something special - like a vintage cross, shoe clip, cameo, locket, tin type, medal, or stone.
Gather the treasure pieces you plan to use, and even some that you think you won't use. It is better to have multiple options when creating. If you have something you love but are unsure how to use it, bring it to class and we will try to work it in. Questions? Email Amy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- If you'd like to purchase a catered lunch, please purchase the class with catered lunch option.
- Amy will have a limited number of original jewelry items on hand for those interested in purchasing her pieces.
- The class location is in Santa Ana, California. The address will be provided upon purchase of class.
- Due to limited class size, the spot for this class is transferable but payment is non-refundable.
