All tools and materials are provided by instructor.  A light vegetarian lunch will also be provided. 

Artist Denise Ward has been designing jewelry for over 25 years. Her work is sold in contemporary crafts galleries, museum gift shops, and stores on the West Coast, as well as The Kennedy Center for Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. Inspired by the ancient jewelry designs, her jewelry reflects antiquity in a modern mood with bright colors and intriguing imagery. Each piece is handcrafted by Ward from earrings to cufflinks.
