Wirework Description: Melange is an award-winning design by the instructor, and she is here to share it with you. Choose from rings, earrings, or pendants -- how about a little of each? The techniques will be demonstrated and color tutorials will be provided to students so they can repeat the process at home. Students will complete accessories and be able to wear their jewelry the same day. Additional session offered Tuesday evening, June 4 (B130039).
