Mitä teet

We will begin with a peek in the Boutique, featuring jewelry handcrafted by award-winning US artists, and a behind-the-scenes look at my working jewelry studio. I will also share some history of my 1890 building, including a copy of the handwritten deed to the original house. In the workshop you will use a combination of specialized jeweler's hand tools (the same that were used to make jewelry in the 19th century) and modern equipment to make your bracelet. First, you will hammer steel letter stamps to impress inspirational words, phrases, and designs of your choice onto a copper strip. Then, you will form the strip into a cuff bracelet with hammers and steel tools, oxidize (blacken) the metal, and polish to your desired finish. You will go home with a meaningful piece of jewelry that you created with your own hands. We limit the workshop to four students to guarantee lots of personal instruction, as well as the opportunity to get to know your classmates. You can relax and enjoy a glass of Virginia wine or a beer from an Alexandria microbrewery.
Other things to note
Our studio workstations are six feet apart and separated by plexiglass barriers. Hand sanitizer is available. Unfortunately, our Victorian-era building is not fully accessible to the handicapped.

I’ve been making art all of my life (drawing, graphics, photography) and now my current passion is jewelry making. I own Wear Ever Jewelry Handcrafted Boutique and Jewelry School in charming Alexandria, Virginia, where I love helping students create their own uniquely personal jewelry using traditional hand techniques. My Master’s degree in Jewelry/Metals and eight years of nationwide teaching equip me with a thorough knowledge of design and techniques. My own work has been honored by the jewelry industry’s prestigious Saul Bell Design Awards, Niche Awards, and MJSA Vision Awards. In this workshop, you will be personally guided through the jewelry making process by me and/or Beth, our experienced goldsmith. We are always thrilled when students are bursting with delight and a sense of accomplishment at their finished pieces.

A wonderful experience that I would recommend for anyone looking to craft something special for themselves or someone else, all while learning more about the process of making jewelry.

We made beautiful copper bracelets. You will get a chance to customize it however you want and Jennifer will assist you every step of the way. Amazing value especially since you walk away with such great keepsakes.

An amazing experience and the best time spent with my friends and family on our mini Vacation. We were able to learn, craft, & come home with our very own personalized jewelry. A must do!!

This was a great 'something to do' while visiting DC. I enjoyed hands-on experience and getting my creative juices flowing. The host/instructors were very nice and patient. And they ensure no sharing of equipment without a wipe-down first. The Old Towne area of Alexandria was a great place to explore before/after the class as well.
