Wire Wrapping Crystals 101
With Joy Migala Ochse
Sunday, September 27th
Two Small-Group Sessions:
2:00 pm – 3:30 pm & 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm
$45 Offering (materials included)
If you have a crystal that is energetically significant to you or that you just think is beautiful, and want to have it be part of you at all times, this workshop is for you!
During this gathering, you will learn basic wire wrapping techniques using bare copper wire and a crystal/stone of your choice.
Your crystal creations will be suspended from an 18-inch faux leather cord so that you can wear it yourself or gift it to someone special. We will have a variety of appropriately sized/shaped crystals to choose from (as well as the information on their energetic correspondences), or you may bring your own special piece.
For the techniques we will be using, crystals with at least 1.5-2 inches of length work best, but we can make almost anything work if needed!
- 18-20 gauge bare copper wire
- Faux leather cord in your choice of color
- Choice of crystal to wrap
- Jewelry Pliers: Round nose pliers, chain nose pliers, and wire snips
- Each attendee will have their own set of pliers to use during the gathering, which will be sterilized before & after each gathering. Optionally, you may purchase your own set from Whimsical Witch to keep. If you have these tools at home already and would like to bring your own you may do so.
*Masks will be worn for the duration of the gathering and social distancing will be observed. Hand sanitizer and gloves can be provided as well. If you are feeling unwell the day of the gathering, I will happily issue you a full refund or reschedule you for a gathering at another date.*
