Shannon Bundschuh | NEW SECTION! Studded Hoop Earrings | Friday, February 2, 2024 | 5:30 pm until 9:30pm



A modern take on a classic hoop.

In this 4-hour class we will create a pair of earrings with ball embellishments that go around each entire hoop.

What is not included… frustration while adding ball embellishments to a round surface.

I will take you through my process to avoid balls falling off of your circle as you go.

You will gain tips and tricks for your soldering toolbox that will apply to many future projects you create.


I don’t want to brag or make anybody jealous, but….I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school. (Ha!)

Out of stock

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