Jewellery Class Season!

This is the time of year when Jewel Envy runs a lot of one-day workshops. They are the perfect early holiday gift! Buy one for the DIY-er in your family, or take a class with your bestie, because what better gift is there than good memories? (Other than jewellery, of course!)

Next up is an ornament making class on November 15th, and a stacking ring class on November 16th.

In the ornament class you can learn to make holiday ornament, or even just a pretty window hanger. You can use it to decorate your own home, or give it as a thoughtful, handmade gift.

In the stacking ring class, you will learn to make thin sterling silver rings that can be stacked together on one finger for visual oomph, or wear them scattered on different fingers. I hear that’s how the cool kids wear them.

Sign up in store, or online at www.jewelenvy.ca
You can see a complete list of classes that are running until the end of December.

Stacks are the new black!

Learn to make plain polished rings, textured rings, twisted wire rings, and rings with small shapes!

STACKED

The more the merrier!  
Power in numbers!  
Three’s a crowd but more is a party!
etc!
What I’m getting at here, is that sometimes one just isn’t enough.  It is, after all, the loneliest number.  So unless you are a hobbit (hehe), perhaps your one ring could use some company.  To prove that point, we had another stacking ring workshop in the studio yesterday.  The ladies, Kristina and Kim, were very worthy goldsmiths-in-training.
Here they are hard at work:

Here is amazing result of all their benchwork:

If you can’t make it in for a workshop, never fear!  We have a great selection of stacking rings, already made just for you.  Take a look:

Have a great week!
