Lynne Suprock

July 22 – 23, 2023

A Two-Day Workshop
All Materials Included

*** Please read studio information and waiver of liability at the end of this class listing.***



I am a collector of STUFF.  I organize, categorize, and display all sorts of Stuff.  I also wear my Stuff.  How wonderful to collect and incorporate all that Stuff into Art To Wear!

Do you have your kid’s or some of your grandkid’s school photos?  Any sketches or artwork?  Any beloved pet fur or baby locks? How about a piece of that vintage lace or a special postage stamp?

So, then, why not make them into fabulous charms to wear?  I’ve done just that, and doing it for quite awhile now, so I have many, many bracelets.  So so addicting!  Each bracelet is a wrist full of stories or celebrations that can be worn individually or together with a few more.  Each are wonderfully unique…..and they jingle!

This is usually a one-day, fast-paced class.  For our two-day class, we will have plenty of time to add more charms and embellishments and learn a few extra tricks.  We will make a rich, full charm bracelet!  Come join me, won’t you?
In this workshop, everyone will learn basic soldering techniques with no lead solder.  We will learn placement, foiling, corner creasing, soldering, jump ring placement, and a solder dot technique.  We will add beads to headpins, drill holes in old jewelry, or attach jump rings on metals that are solder friendly.  We will learn how to use a special jig to allow soldering of more than one charm at a time.  All the tools will be available to share.  All you need to bring is your “stuff” and a few small items as outlined on the accompanying list below.  Everyone will complete a charm bracelet to include 8 to 10 or more glass charms, buttons, bead bling, found objects and recycled personal jewelry.  Take a look at some of the sample bracelets for inspirational embellishments.
