Learn to make beautiful jewelry from scraps of cloth, paper, beads, yarn scraps, pretty string, and bits of this and that! Have a beloved earring who’s lost her mate? Broken piece of an old necklace or ring? This will be their chance at new life! ​ The objective of this course is to acquaint the learner with the potential of found objects, paper, fiber and other non-traditional materials as jewelry-making material and to give the learner the basic know-how, practice and expert guidance to continue to explore this craft on her own.
