Using a variety of reuse materials and lots of creativity, participants will have the opportunity to learn about jewelry-making. You’ll work with and try out different tools to make multiple pendants and at least one pair of earrings! There may even be time left at the end to make additional jewelry pieces.

We’ll provide materials to make a piece of jewelry out of metal, to turn everyday objects into a piece of jewelry, create a piece of jewelry inspired by another culture, and to make a sparkly gift.

As an added bonus – once you’ve made the four different pieces of jewelry, you will have finished the requirements to earn the Girl Scout Junior Jeweler badge!

Participants do not need to be scouts to participate.

This class is geared towards 4th and 5th graders. However, kids 8-13 are invited and welcome to attend!

About the instructor:
Karen Miller is an engineer and artist who works primarily with reuse materials in collage, assemblage and mosaic. She is also a long-time scout leader. Combining her love of working with scouts and reuse materials, Karen has developed several arts and crafts workshops for young people that focus on safely learning how to use specific tools while reusing cool materials to create masterpieces.
