Taught by Emilie Shapiro

Emilie Shapiro is a jewelry designer, teacher and author living in New York City. Her jewelry line, Emilie Shapiro Contemporary Metals is sold worldwide at galleries and museum shops such as Anthropologie, Sundance, and the American Museum of Natural History. She comes from a long line of creative entrepreneurs, inventors, and free spirits who have encouraged her to explore many different mediums throughout her artistic life. Emilie uses the ancient craft of lost wax casting which dates back to the Egyptians, wherein she carves sculptural pieces into hard wax and casts them into metal. Rough gemstones are incorporated into her work as a celebration of the beauty of natural imperfection. All production and resources are kept as local as possible, and every piece is handmade in Emilie’s studio in New York City.

Location: Prospect Heights Brainery (190 Underhill Ave in Prospect Heights, BK)

In this class, we'll create our own set of sterling silver, copper and brass stacking rings from start to finish. We'll learn to measure, form, and solder the rings, then finish them by creating a hammered texture, oxidized finish, or a high polish.

Everyone will leave with a set (2-3) of their very own handmade rings, like the below!
