Upon your arrival at my studio in SW Portland there will be snacks as well as still & sparking water while we introduce ourselves and discuss the plan for the class. I will teach you some of the basics of stamping charms and several of the different techniques you can use. You will have time to practice these skills on your sample charm, getting a feel for design placement, hammering and creating texture. You'll have the option of making different shapes of charms stamped with your words or designs of choice, the perfect souvenir if you are visiting Portland. At this point you may also purchase extra charms to stamp if you wish. When you are finished stamping your charms, we will discuss jewelry assembly. You will leave the experience with a complete necklace (or bracelet) including two sterling silver charms stamped by you, and a sterling silver necklace or bracelet!
I have been a jewelry designer with my own business (Amy Wing Designs) for over 11 years, selling my work in fine boutiques around the country, at Portland Saturday Market, and at local art & craft fairs. I am passionate about creating beautiful, simple and elegant pieces that are both wearable and fashionable and I am inspired by travel to places near and far. I love transforming the shapes, colors and textures around me into my work. I have been stamping since I started working with metal and at this point have stamped thousands of charms. I receive hundreds of custom orders every year for names, dates and favorite quotes as well as special designs. I look forward to showing you how to stamp metal and create beautiful designs using tips and tricks that I have learned along the way! You can check out my work on Instagram @AmyWingDesigns
