Join in the magic of creating jewelry, accessories, and decorations with some of our earth's magnificent stones. We will explore using natural materials such as semi-precious stones, leather, and feathers to create various projects using the techniques of beading and wire wrapping. Learn how to assemble jewelry and discover the special properties of certain stones, allowing you to create pieces and projects with specific purpose and intention. Find inspiration in other jewelry artists and in nature and then broaden your focus to make other fun creations from similar materials like wind chimes, wall hangings, and more.
