Welcome to the Atlanta Jewelry Maker's meetup! My name is Wendy Tonsits and I am the owner of Amalgam Arts, a jewelry studio in Decatur, GA. Our meetups will be held at the Amalgam studio at 743 E. College Ave; Ste E; Decatur, GA 30030..yep, right through that orange door!
Our Meetup will feature a Make-A-Ring Art Party, the first and most popular of our expanding series of casual, entertaining, and enriching classes. The workshop begins at 10am and wraps up at 2pm. During this class you will be able to create, from start to finish, a band ring using sterling silver wire and sheet, a blowtorch, and your own two hands! Designs can vary from a simple, highly polished ring to one that is textured or stamped to show off your unique style. A $45 fee covers materials, studio tool use and instruction. Stones may be added from our in-house selection (onyx, malachite, turquoise, amber, moonstone, hematite, and lapis, to name a few) for an additional $5 for each stone and setting combo.
Bring snacks or beverages of your choice....alcoholic beverages being the exception! You might get hungry from all your creative efforts. Please wear comfortable clothing and close toed shoes!
The atmospheres at AMALGAM is a comfortable, casual, and productive environment. In addition you can view our jewelry for sale and learn about our other classes, not to mention meet other aspiring and professional jewelers to see what all of your neighbors are up to! Feel free to bring friends and family...it's the perfect opportunity to make a piece of jewelry to give to a loved one...or keep for yourself! Minors are welcome, but must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Please feel free to contact me at [masked] if you have any questions. I look forward to seeing you there! -Wendy
