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 Atlanta, close to Decatur. Our meetups will be held at the Amalgam studio at 3172 E. Ponce de Leon Ave, 30079.
Our September 2010 Meetup will feature a Make-A-Pair of Earrings 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 pair of earrings using sterling silver wire and sheet, a blowtorch, and your own two hands! Designs can vary from a simple, highly polished pair of earrings to ones that are textured or stamped to show off your unique style. A $35 fee covers materials, instruction and light snacks. 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. Please feel free to view our galleries of past art parties to see examples of the jewelry that students have made.
The atmospheres at AMALGAM is a comfortable, casual, and productive environment. In addition you can view our jewelery 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
