About the event

Create your own kinetic mechanisms to make your jewelry move. In this workshop, we will make a silver slide-to-open hinged locket with a stone set clasp. In addition we will make several other kinetic components, including stone set hinges, ball and socket joints, spinners, and more! Make your jewelry interactive and playful by incorporating these mechanisms.
