In this new jewelry design workshop, jewelry designer KT Carney will show you how to make fun, lightweight, colorful acrylic earrings in the shape of your favorite leaves, cacti, or other plant & foliage-inspired designs. You will learn to saw and finish acrylic sheeting while completing a pair of earrings with metal findings. Along the way, you’ll have the opportunity to practice foundational jewelry-making skills, such as hand sawing, piercing, filing, sanding and assembly. Keeping it old school, almost everything in class is done by hand, so don’t be afraid to get a little dusty! Many of the skills you will gain may be applied across both acrylic and metal jewelry making, including how to load your saw blade, picking the right shaped file, transferring your design on to your material, attaching jump rings, and more. Each student will leave with a pair of earrings and enough knowledge to continue making acrylic jewelry at home!
KT Carney has been making all kinds of jewelry since she was a child. From teaching bead camps to welding steel sculptures, she is always getting her hands and clothes dirty. After studying sculpture in college and working in consumer goods and retail, she has made the jump to back to jewelry with her line Cody Ferris. When she’s not making things, she’s at Ocean Beach with her pups. Check out codyferris.com
