Jewelry Design with Mara Freeman
Mara Freeman Archive: Summer programs
PLEASE NOTE THE DEADLINE TO SIGN UP IS JULY 11th. Come spend a week exploring some fun and simple ways to make that bright sparkly stuff called jewelry! Children will start out learning how to make simple earrings and bracelets using pliers, colored copper and brass wire and a box full of beads. Then we’ll bring out some colorful bottle caps, resin (aka 2 part epoxy from the hardware store), sparkles and anything else to make colorful scatter pins. We will also explore drawing on metal with Prismacolor pencils to create unique earring and pendants. Finally, everyone will have the opportunity to learn how to solder copper and brass wire together to create more complex pieces.
Mara Freeman is a long-time designer of her own jewelry collection. She is a graduate of RISD. She will be representing The Gilded Lynx, a jewelry and metal works shop on Ridgefield’s Main Street. A sampling of her work may be viewed here https://www.marafreeman.com
