活動內容

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 and a look at some hand-forged 19th-century nails used to build it. 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 hydraulic press, 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 six 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.

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.

Jennifer was sweet, detailed, informed and very passionate and because of that my daughter and I were able to really enjoy our bracelet making experience. We had a great time bonding, laughing and learning how to make our jewelry. Jennifer answered all of our questions and put my 11 yr old at ease and confident enough in herself to make a beautiful piece of jewelry that we’ll be taking back home to California. Thank you Jennifer we had a greatTime!!!

Took my two daughters, ages 14 and 10, to this experience while on a trip to D.C. Jennifer was a welcoming and friendly host who really knew how to make a non-artist like me feel capable of making a bracelet. My girls loved it and when the youngest had extra trouble with her design Jennifer stepped in and helped her progress. My suggestion is that you think about what you might want to write on your bracelet before you get there as that took me a lot of time that I could have spent playing with all the fonts and designs available. The studio was comfortable and full of all the tools you need and overall the experience was fantastic. Highly recommend.

Jennifer was a super friendly and helpful. She was knowledgeable person about making the copper bracelets and super helpful for those of us who were "not talented". But she made us all feel like our bracelet was a very special project. I would recommend the experience.

My husband, daughter, granddaughter and I thoroughly enjoyed making bracelets with Jennifer. We range in age from 15 to 73, and we were all intrigued with the processes that were expertly explained. It was a great start to our trip. And, we all have beautiful (well, interesting and unique) bracelets to remember the experience. Thank you Jennifer!

This was a wonderful way to pause from everyday life and enjoy a creative experience. Jennifer was warm and welcoming and made you feel like whatever you create is beautiful.

She was fun and knowledgeable. It’s a little space and can be a bit noisy ( might wanna bring earplugs if u can’t handle loud sounds)
