Description
This Heart Chains class is a stand alone class, but it can easily be paired with the Be Still My Heart Pendant class also offered here at Creative Workshops. A discounted price is being offered if both classes are purchased at the same time. 
Click Here to purchase both classes.


Sometimes the beauty of a necklace lies just as much with the chain as it does with  the pendant  that hangs from it!!  Learn to make this vintage gypsy style chain that pairs perfectly with the "BE STILL MY HEART" pendant taught in a separate class also offered here at Creative Workshops.  This assembled chain would also look special adorning your own pendants that you may have, or it could be made extra long for a double or triple wrap necklace, with no pendant at all!

You will learn some basic jewelry skills including opening and closing a jump ring correctly,  how to connect chain segments and decorative elements together and  we will also cover more artistic skills such as wire wrapping beads,crystals, rhinestones, etc. how to make "connectors" using old buttons, and more.

Every chain made will look completely unique, determined by the styles, colors and shapes of your chosen beads and other pieces. This class is good for any level!
