Wire Wrapped Sea Glass Pendant
Arts & DIY
Materials saved from the landfill:
Sea glass, copper wire
Skills you'll learn:
Cutting and shaping copper wire
Starting with beautiful pieces of sea glass, learn how to create a unique pendant using entirely recycled materials. Sea glass starts out as mere litter, broken bottles left on the shore that have been transformed by the ocean. Over several decades Mother Nature transforms this litter into something beautiful. In class, we will continue to highlight the beauty of the glass by setting it using copper wire. The wire used is old electrical wiring that would otherwise be sent to the refinery. We will use jewelers pliers to shape and form the wire to support the sea glass, ending with a beautiful pendant!
All ages welcome
