Katie is the instructor for the jewelry making classes and she can tell you all about the different classes that are available. If you love copper jewelry, then Katie offers a hammered copper cuff bracelet class. The secret to this piece of copper jewelry is that you will be working with copper refrigerator tubing. Who would have thought? Not a soul when you proudly display this work of art—your work of art—on your wrist as you leave the class! Another class that is popular is the hammered spiral set class that teaches you how to create a 3-piece jewelry set consisting of earrings, a pendant and a ring.
