Use salt water to etch your own custom design on brass to create a pair of earrings. Learn basic silversmithing techniques to hand saw your etched brass into a custom shape as well as make your own ear wires to make your pair one of a kind. Designs can be hand drawn, rubber stamped or cut from contact paper – whatever sparks your creative vision! All levels welcome!

Jenice of California Native Jewelry is an Alameda based metalsmith who works primarily with recycled silver and semi-precious stones. Her love of everything handmade can be seen in her work where she personally makes everything down to the posts on a pair of earrings. She moved back to the Bay Area after building a house and making Grass Valley, CA her home for ten years. When not working on her own products she can be found learning and sharing her adventures in all things craft, from tapestry weaving to natural dyeing on IG @canativejewelry 

Emily J. Burton is a designer, metalsmith, rock musician and lifelong aficionado of all things handcrafted. Her jewelry and curios company, Dutch Hollow General, is a one-woman business based in her metals studio in downtown Los Angeles.
