All of our workshops are taught by Dina, Owner of Modnitsa Atelier. Under her guided instruction, you will explore color theory, learn about composition and design, and craft unique and stunning jewelry using semi-precious stones, crystals, beads and silver findings. All our classes are hands on, high-energy and super fun!

We have 3 beginner class options to choose from:

  • In this 1-hour workshop you will learn to make a beautiful pair of drop earrings using the wire-wrapping technique. The design has one wire-wrapped stone on top of another stone, connected via head-pins.

    You will be provided a set of tools to use during the class (you can purchase the tool kit to take home with you if you wish). You will also receive all the necessary findings (ear wires and wire) to construct your pieces. Stones and beads are not included in the class price, but we have a large selection of semi-precious stones, crystals and beads available for purchase (prices start at $10). You are also welcome to bring any stones you'd like to include in your design.
