Kissing Spirals Earrings Class With Maria Richmond says
CLASS DESCRIPTION These lightweight and comfortable earrings use one continuous piece of wire for the base. They are about 1-1/4" to 1-3/8" long from top to bottom. Wire weaving and wrapping is done with another continuous piece of 26 gauge wire. This is an intermediate level project designed for students who are comfortable making spirals of similar sizes and wire wrapping an open form, but the confident beginner can accomplish it by first practicing spirals. Previous wirewrapping experience required.

INSTRUCTOR Artist Maria Richmond draws her inspiration from the possibilities she sees in ordinary objects and materials. While she plays with wire, she often envisions unique ways of combining traditional, repurposed, and found objects into her creations. She regularly teaches in Western Pennsylvania, as well as other venues. She teaches basic and intermediate techniques in a relaxed atmosphere. Her goal is to help her students find their own creative voice and the endless possibilities in the seemingly mundane.
