Jewelry Making

Guest Teacher: Jan Bajgier, Jewelry Maker

 Jan Bajgier is a local jewelry maker.  When she first began creating jewelry she utilized a variety of bead types and precious metals.  Her designs were often dictated by the way the beads worked together and evolved as she wired or strung them.  In this class she will work with the children and help them create their own jewelry pieces.  Students will be able to select from a large variety of beads to create bracelets or necklaces by stringing them onto elastic or Beadalon cord.  Jan will also provide head pins and ear wires for making earrings for older students who are comfortable with using jewelry making tools.
