About the Event

Learn how to make your own jewelry using beginner friendly techniques, like wire wrapping, to create one of a kind accessories! This will be a small class in a semi-private fashion; only 4 seats will be available to ensure the quality of the course and one-on-one attention. There will be a beautiful selection of gemstones and beads to choose from to personalize your pieces. 

This class will be taught by Betsy Meyers-Green. 

Betsy Meyers has been producing “art to wear” handcrafted jewelry for over 30 years. She has received well-deserved praise for her fashionable work ~ earrings, pins, necklaces, bracelets and other wearable pieces which incorporate a wide variety of precious and semi-precious gemstones as well as river rocks and fossils. Her use of karat golds on textured silver creates a rich setting for many vibrant gemstones. She employs a technique called “kuem-bo” ~ an ancient Korean process of fusing thin sheets of gold onto sterling silver and applying texture. She holds a BFA degree in Metalsmithing and jewelry from the Center for Creative Studies in Detroit, MI, and received national attention with a feature article in the November 1997 issue of Lapidary Journal. Betsy participates in fine art shows & festivals around the country, including 14 years at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Her pieces are featured in museum shops, fine art galleries and shops across the country.
