This workshop will be held on the Zoom platform. We will send you a Zoom for Beginners information sheet when you register.  

Students should have access to a computer/device with a camera and microphone and good internet service. 

We will be hosting a Virtual Festival Kick-Off Party where you are welcome to learn the platform and meet other participants.

Amanda will demonstrate how to use small gemstones and heavy gauge sterling silver wire to create a set of 3 rings with one bezel set gemstone on the center band. She’ll use real gemstones, but “alternate” stones for some months. January/Garnet; February/Amethyst; March/Aquamarine; April/White Topaz; May/Chrysoprase; June/Moonstone; July/ Carnelian; August/Peridot; September/Lapis; October/Jasper; November/ Citrine; December/Turquoise

This workshop will be presented as a demonstration, however, those who wish to make rings are encouraged to work along with Amanda.
