Studio Luna Verde | Fringes and Hinges: post earrings | Wednesday, February 7, 2024 | 9:00 am until 6:00 pm (1-hour lunch period)



here’s the thing, we all know reasonably well how to make french hook ear wires, right?

in this class, i’d like to encourage you to up your game and get out of your comfort zone by creating post earrings.

we will also incorporate movement with a hinged fringe of silver, then add a splash of color with stones bezeled with an unconventional ruffled edge.

join me on the fringe!

please note: in my classes, i give students free rein on design, and course images shown are a small sampling of where these techniques can be taken.

Out of stock

It looks like this is a very popular class and has sold out!
