2023-06-10 - Sølje-Inspired Earrings
Saturday, June 10 (10:00 am-12:00 pm)
This is an in-person class hosted at Vesterheim Folk Art School in Decorah, Iowa.
Ever wonder why sølje pins have those shiny dangles with silver disc drops? These discs are called “spoons” or “shells” in Norwegian. Silver has long been a protective element against evil and abduction by the hulder folk in Scandinavia. Legend has it that if you run into the devil wearing your sparkling sølje, he would see his own reflection and run away! Don’t run away from a chance to create your own silver- and gold-washed earrings in this short class designed to introduce you to the beauty of Scandinavian silverwork.
All supplies are provided by the instructor. There is a materials fee of $60 payable directly to the instructor.
