Aluminum is a lightweight, malleable metal which does not discolor or tarnish the way that other metals do. In this class, students will learn about the advantages of aluminum as well as its limits, and will leave with several finished pieces of jewelry!
Each student will get to decide what kind(s) of jewelry they would like to make: earrings, bracelets, and/or necklaces.
Age 10+ (under 18 must be accompanied by an adult)
