Making these items into wearable pieces of art - amplifying their power to become amulets and talismans - is a rewarding experience that's easy to do.

Working with the most basic of tools, you will learn cold-connection jewelry techniques to expand your creative process. In addition to basics like creating jump rings and using a file, you will also: Make your own hook and latch claspsCut windows from sheets of metalInlay designs into polymer clayIncorporate concrete into your workAchieve patinas with heatJournal your thoughts onto faux boneTurn paper pulp into realistic rocksCreate time capsule beads from PlexiglasAnd much, much more Discover the rewards of making your own amulets and talismans by learning new techniques to drive your creativity in an entirely new direction.
