Students will learn through instructor demonstration and guided hands-on practice how to repurpose and recycle old jewelry into something new. The instructor will provide an assortment of old or broken jewelry/beads and new findings like chains and earring wires to use during the class. Students are encouraged, but not required, to bring in old jewelry they would like to give new life to. All the tools needed will be provided for use during the classes.
Sarah Jones is a BARN founding member, jewelry studio programming, and steering committee, member. She is a local Bainbridge Island artist, and teacher with experience in fine metal arts, jewelry, ceramics, sculpture, stained glass, and photography.
Because Sarah is a visual and tactile learner herself, her classes typically involve a lot of hands-on learning time. In addition, Sarah’s classes are accompanied by printed information and resources for her students to refer back to when practicing their new skills.
Sarah’s art has been displayed in the Seattle Metals Guild exhibitions and Bainbridge Arts & Craft exhibitions.
