Soigne is pleased to invite you to its’ mixed media jewelry classes. We teach non conventional methods of making contemporary jewelry using metals, glass, cement, resin, felt, photographs, enamel, and other found objects.
All methods are quick and don’t require being precise…it is a freestyle jewelry making course.
After your first class, you will not only be able to make your first jewelry piece from design to execution but you will have all the knowledge to set up your own studio at home on a small budget.
