Cold Connections: Cobblestone Beach Necklace/Bracelet
Beachcombing the North Shore has been a natural pastime for generations of Lake Superior enthusiasts: picking agates, puzzling over driftwood pieces and collecting sea glass. This jewelry project lets you design and construct a very personalized necklace or bracelet using found objects and items you may have collected. Learn how to connect these items using cold connections and unique sterling silver links, finishing them off with a handmade clasp. Suggested items to bring to class are North Shore pebbles; found pieces of bone, shell, fossils, claws, teeth, petrified wood, sea glass and pottery shards; beads, antique buttons, watch parts and perhaps elements from old jewelry you never wear. Molly will bring to this workshop for purchase sterling silver sheet, wire, tubing and findings to be used to design the linkage between your objects. All tools will be provided including drill bits for drilling metal and found materials.
