Care for an evening of gettin' crafty whilst socializing over chocolate mezcal? (Need we even ask?) Learn to make a custom pendant necklace from the local creatives during this HART Jewelry (and sipping) class at The Goat Farm. Then don your new baubles and wait for the the compliments to roll in. (They will!)
Let's be honest: there's nothing quite as satisfying as telling inquiring minds that your jewelry is, yes, handmade by yours truly. (Insert hair-flip here.) For those of us who crave that crafty know-how but haven't let loose as of late, the talented peeps at HART Jewelry
are here to gently guide us toward artistic greatness. HART Jewelry crafts exclusive elements using techniques such as lost wax casting, forging metals and applying signature finishes. Meghan McKendree is the founder and lead designer. After many years of branding Vagabond Arts, she decided to mark and honor her growth with the HART Jewelry line. Meghan’s resume includes working one-on-one with wardrobe designers who commissioned her to make jewelry for lead characters in films released by Paramount, Disney, and Lionsgate. She has a list of stars, musicians and public figures who have collected her jewelry for years.
And at these HART Jewelry quill necklace workshops, learning the ropes of the creative crafting prowess happens to be pretty damn fun, too. The founder, Meghan McKendree, not only runs one of the most charming collective shops but also shares her wealth of knowledge with any of us admirers who aspire to be as crafty as her. In this particular class, would-be crafters will learn how to put their own personal stamp on a self-made bronze or sterling quill pendant necklace. Yup, this is your chance to choose what your baubles will tell the world while learning how to properly work with precious metals and stones. Whether you choose silver or bronze as your metal, is all up to you. Either way, you'll learn a world of knowledge while having a blast and a half in this two-hour class that will also feature some very necessary brain juice to fuel your creativity. (We're talkin' about a few shots chocolate mezcal direct from Meghan’s inspirational hometown village in Mexico, folks.)
Imagine clinking glasses with some new friends while learning about proper spacing techniques, understanding the difference between the gauges and getting to know the right tools for you to continue this craft at home (AGAIN. over more chocolate mezcal, of course). And after all, is said and done, it's time to celebrate with a slow sip (mmm...), as you don your creations and wait for those compliments to start rolling in. After all, you made that with your own two hands.
