In this workshop, participants will use a piece of cholla skeleton as the focal point to create a unique, textural necklace. Cholla skeletons are the wood parts of the cholla cactus, which have been beautifully weathered by the harsh desert. Participants will accent their pieces with real turquoise beads and learn how to make their own copper wire beads, use patina solution to darken metal, forge their own clasps, and finish their pieces using seed beads of their choice. No previous jewelry-making experience is required. All materials are included.
