  • Overview

      We’ll take cut up ‘beads’ from aluminum knitting needles and use the wonderful palette of colors to make 3 pairs of bright and unique recycled material earrings to keep or give as gifts! Instructor Jennifer Davies has been turning old metal knitting needles and crochet hooks into whimsical jewelry and accessories for 8 years under the name of Bur Oak Studio. She was inspired by the knitters in her family, including her mom and step-mom. Modern knitters lean towards wood/bamboo needles & hooks, but most have some of the old styles-like the ones we all learned on! Check out her designs at www.buroakstudio.com. All materials and tools are provided for this easy, creative class. No prior jewelry making experience needed!
