You will make an adorable all sterling silver and enamel "Fly" bird charm, as shown in the picture. We will start with a brief introduction of what enamel is and it's properties. Then it's time to get to "making". You will choose your favorite color from 4 different shades of blue enamel. Then you will the sift the enamel onto your charm for the first layer using an enamel sifter tool. Next the piece is fired in the kiln. You will have the choice to load the piece yourself or have assistance with this. Your piece will take a few minutes to cool, so you can relax and chat with fellow participants or myself. You will sift enamel on again once more and fire a second time. A few minutes more to cool and then you will add a tiny silver "eye" and fire for the final time. Finally your charm will get a quick polish and a jump ring to finish it off. This takes about 5 minutes so you can shop our gallery or wander some nearby galleries while you await your final piece.
Il tuo host
I have been making jewelry for as long as I can remember, which is at least 35 years now! I fell in love with enamel the very first time I experimented with it. So after completing a Jewelry Technician Course in San Francisco I opened my business, Bluebird Designs, featuring a happy and whimsical line of enamel jewelry. That was 9 years ago and I have been teaching workshops and sharing that love with others for 8 years now. In 2014 I relocated my business to Asheville's vibrant River Arts District and I now co-own Ignite Jewelry Studios as well. Come enjoy an enamel workshop with me and then explore the RAD area. Not only will you leave with an adorable piece of jewelry, but also have a memorable day exploring the River Arts District.

Dove ti troverai
Come make your charm exactly where I create all my own pieces in my complete metal smithing studio in the River Arts District. This is where I fabricate all my enamel jewelry for my business, Bluebird Designs and Ignite Jewelry Studios. Throughout the building and district there are many other open studios to explore before your workshop, as well as some exquisite food options. Oh and a few breweries as well;)
