These earrings feature lovely sculptural bead cages cut from brass tubing. The edges have been 'coined' or cut with tiny hash marks using a hammer. This technique is the featured technique tonight at Technique Thursday here at the store. You'll saw the tubing and then coin the edges. It's an amazing detail that really sets the earrings apart.

Our Technique Thursday is a drop-in class focusing on metalsmithing techniques and tips each Thursday night. For just a few dollars you can make the project under the watchful eye of one of our most talented staff members. For free you can watch others make the project.

We'd love to see you tonight. If you'd like to look at upcoming Technique Thursdays click here.
