Kirigami Earrings
Reviewed by Anonymous on 10/24/2016
Overall the class was good. Valerie as a teacher was very patient especially since I was an absolute beginner. For some reason I thought it was going to be a simple earring project using basic supplies. No way did I envision having to use a torch to anneal the metal, pickle to clean it, a drill to make holes, a jeweler's saw and blade to cut out the design and then solder and flux to attach a jump ring etc. In order to make more of these I would either have to pay for bench time or invest in some costly materials and tools. This is not a simple make at home project but I walked away with a pair of lovely handmade earrings and jewelry-making techniques that I had only seen and read about in books prior to taking this class. I would definitely recommend this school and their classes and workshops if you are serious about learning the fundamentals of jewelry design. Thanks!
