Steampunk jewelry is composed of gears, watch parts, hardware and whatever quirky items you choose. In a one-day workshop participants will learn step-by-step how to bring the pieces together to make a show stopping necklace. Students will also learn how to use patinas and alcohol inks to add color and contrast to their creations. This is the perfect class for individuals looking for special instruction and for friends and family who enjoy crafting together.
