2024-01-24 Sparkly Pewter Thread Earrings (Online)
Explore a new “twist” on a traditional craft! Using pewter wire thread and a macramé-style weave, students will create a pair of hoop earrings with a silver drop and sterling silver French hook ear wires. Finished hoops are approximately one-inch in diameter and display a soft shimmery sparkle in sunlight and candle light. No previous experience is necessary, but a willingness to use hand tools is required.
All levels of proficiency are welcome. Please be advised that good hand strength and good eyesight (we suggest the addition of magnifier glasses) is recommended.
Two flat nose pliers are required. If you don’t have a pair, they can be purchased from the Museum Store.
Students will need to provide a computer, laptop, or tablet with a camera and mic as well as a fast, reliable internet connection.
