Wooden Earrings at the Y
I had an absolutely fantastic time leading my wooden earring workshop at the 92nd St. Y over the weekend. Two days is not a lot of time to adjust to a new material, but my students threw themselves into it and made some very hot earrings.
We learned how to use woodworking tools and how to appropriate metal-working tools for our purposes.
We learned how to enhance wood's natural properties and how to transform them by using gold leaf, makeup, paint, a steam iron, or fire.
Check out Margaux Lange's stunning cherry earrings with silver pique and resin inlay (why didn't I think of that!?!?).
