Welcome to the Atlanta Jewelry Maker's meetup! My name is Wendy Tonsits and I am the owner of Amalgam Arts (http://www.amalgamartsatlanta.com/), a jewelry studio in Decatu, GA. Our meetups will be held at the Amalgam studio at 743 E. College Ave; Ste E; Decatur, GA 30030..yup, right behind that orange door!
Our 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 simple, highly polished earrings to ones that are textured or stamped to show off your unique style. A $45 fee covers materials 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.
Make sure to bring snacks and beverages of your choice.....alcoholic ones being the exception.....and wear comfortable clothes, close toed shoes and please tie back your long hair if necessary! Safety is always my top priority!
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. Contact me at [masked] if you have any questions. I look forward to seeing you there! -Wendy
