Second Chances Project Create to Donate or Make + Take

The holidays are quickly approaching. As part of my continuing efforts to raise funds for the non-profit Haven Housing*, I am holding four free jewelry making sessions in November and December.  Please join me and other members of our creative community to either make jewelry to be sold to raise funds for Haven Housing or to make holiday gifts for your friends and family and purchase them on the date of the class.  The classes will be at the Robbin Gallery.

November -     Monday the 13th 6:00 - 8:00 pm         Wednesday the 15th 6:00 - 8:00 pm

December -     Monday the 4th 6:00 - 8:00 pm            Wednesday the 13th 6:00 - 8:00 pm

The projects offered will be earrings and vintage earring bracelets, but being creative types you can always improvise!  The price is $15 for earrings and $25 for bracelets should you want to make a purchase, however there is no purchase necessary.  All supplies are included and my only three requests are that we (1) all give a big thank you to the Robbin Gallery for helping support this fundraising effort, (2) you will bring your own jewlery making tools if possible but not required, and (3) that you RSVP as space is limited.
