Julia_Necklace-Tom_McCarthy.jpgMaking parts of your jewelry move is often necessary to make it wearable and movement always makes it more interesting. This workshop will explore simple techniques to make things move back and forth and even spin front to back. We will not cover the traditional, tubular hinge, but we will cover techniques related to jump rings, folding, sawing drilling with a goal of creating moving parts that will make your jewelry more interesting and exciting.
