Polly Hendrickson Comes to CraftFusion!

We're excited to announce that the CraftFusion family continues to grow by leaps and bounds as another new artist and talented instructor comes on board . . . Polly Hendrickson of Polly Hendrickson Jewelry Design!  Originally from Tucson, Polly, who also holds a degree in Interior Design from the University of Arizona (UofA), now resides in Chandler where she creates her beautiful jewelry designs from various materials including sterling silver, copper, bronze, brass, and sheet metal.  She first fell in love with creating jewelry after taking a bracelet and earring class at a local bead store, and since then has traveled all over the United Sates to continue taking classes.  She's studied under Connie Fox in San Diego, CA, learning new techniques in Wire Working and Metal Smithing, as well as Susan Lenart Kazmer for techniques in Metal Smithing and Found Objects.  In 2009, she made the decision to quit her full time job to pursue her dream of becoming a jewelry designer and artist, and hasn't looked back or stopped since.  If you'd like to create beautiful jewelry designs, make your reservations now to spend a fun and creative evening with Polly in her first Workshop here at CraftFusion and help us extend her a warm welcome to our Family!

"Resin Paper Wire Form Jewelry" Workshop
with Polly Hendrickson
Thursday, November 21st ~ 6:00pm-9:00pm
Cost: $45.00 (includes holiday snacks & goodies)

Do you love jewelry, but just aren't sure exactly how to make your own?  This is the perfect Workshop for you!  Join Polly as she shares the secrets to making your own charms with this fun and easy technique using ICE Resin created by the fabulous jeweler and mixed media artist, Susan Lenart Kazmer.  You'll learn many uses of ICE Resin and make several charms from steel wire formed into your choice of shapes ready to take home with you.  You'll begin with paper, coat it with resin, attach wire that you've formed to the paper, and when dry, just like magic, you'll have a unique charm to hang from a necklace, bracelet, or earrings.  Polly will have a variety of papers available for you to choose from, but if you'd like to make your charms even more special, bring a favorite paper of something you love, or maybe tissue paper for a more transparent look or an old letter . . . the possibilities are endless!  Maybe even consider adding a favorite word to make your charms truly extraordinary and one-of-a-kind!  Call early to make your reservations, because with seating limited to only 10 students, you won't want to miss out on this fun and creative Workshop!
Tool & Supplies to Bring (if you have them):  Bench block; ball peen hammer; jewelry pliers (round nose & chain nose); any paper you'd like to include; small selection of beads to include with your charms.  All other supplies and materials will be provided.
