Tuesday, December 5th 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM: Ladies, are you looking for a new piece of jewelry to add to your collection? Guys, looking for a one of a kind, hand crafted gift for your love? Do you have something unique you’d like to make into a keepsake, such as a special stone, pressed flower, or a button from a special day? Try your hand at resin art and pour your own pendant and ring. Resin is an epoxy that can be tinted with acrylics, inks, and oils. In the studio, you can choose your favorite colors and materials for a custom-made piece. Join Kim Yarbrough for a reboot of her Last Thursday workshop! $30 includes one pendant and one ring. No experience necessary. Note: Resin has a 48 hour cure time, so the finished jewelry will be picked up at a later date.
