From page A3 | June 13, 2012 |

Artist/educators Diana Taylor and Jill Bowlus are teaching new weeklong jewelry classes this summer at the Davis Art Center, 1919 F St. The classes are designed for students ages 8-18.

In Wire-Wrapped Jewelry, students will create pieces of jewelry — a ring, pendant or other one-of-a-kind item — using various wrapping tools and techniques incorporating shape and design using stone, wire and beads.

Students also will learn a simple origami box, the perfect presentation for gift-giving.

Tools will be available for student use, as well as all findings, wire, beads, polished stones and crystals used to create the jewelry. (A $25 materials fee is included in class fee.)

The class will meet from 3 to 4:30 p.m. June 25-29. The fee is $125 for Art Center members and $135 for nonmembers.

In Chainmaille Jewelry, students will learn three classic weaves: Byzantine, four-in-one European and barrel weave. From this base, students will create bracelets and earrings, and take home handouts with clear directions.

Each student will receive a five-compartment plastic container with more than 500 anodized aluminum 16g rings for creating their chainmaille jewelry. Findings also will be provided and hand tools will be available for use during class. (At $25 materials fee is included in the class fee.)

“If you would like to purchase your own tools, we recommend both flat-nose pliers and bent-nose pliers to manipulate the rings,” a news release said.

The class will meet from 3 to 4:30 p.m. July 16-20. The fee is $125 for Art Center members and $135 for nonmembers.

To register or obtain more information, call the Art Center at (530) 756-4100 or visit www.davisartcenter.org.
