Polymer Clay Jewelry Workshop

Learn how to work with polymer clay to create beautiful pendants for necklaces and earrings with Karen Tretiak, local jewelry artist.

We will “fire” the jewelry pieces in a regular oven and then learn how to attach them to ear wires and chains, leather or ribbons. Students will be able to create more jewelry at home using these techniques. Come join the fun, laughter and creativity!
