Ce vei face

You will make this all sterling silver and enamel mountain pendant.
We will start with a brief introduction of what enamel is and it's properties.
Then it's time to get to "making".
You will make your silver mountain pendant using a sifting technique.
Next the piece is fired in the kiln. You will have the choice to load the piece yourself or have assistance with this.
Your piece will take a few minutes to cool, so you can relax and check out the metal smithing space and/or chat with me or other experience takers.
You will fire your piece once or twice more with the enamel color of choice to finish your piece.
Now you can kick back and check out the gallery while I finish the last details to make your necklace a finished piece!
Other things to note
Wear comfortable clothing and arrive about 5 minutes ahead to sign a waiver and get settled.
My studio is located on the second floor and stairs are required to get up to it.

I have been making jewelry for as long as I can remember, which is at least 33 years! I fell in love with enamel the very first time I experimented with it. So after completing a Jewelry Technician Course in San Francisco I opened my business, Bluebird Designs, featuring a happy and whimsical line of enamel jewelry. That was 10 years ago and I have been teaching workshops and sharing that love with others for 7 years now. In 2014 I relocated my business to Asheville's vibrant River Arts District. And last year my business partner and I opened Ignite Jewelry Studios, a shared jewelry space offering workshops, a retail gallery and more. Come enjoy an enamel workshop with me and then explore the RAD area.

Unde vei fi

Come make your pendant exactly where I create all my own pieces in my complete metal smithing studio in the River Arts District. This is where I fabricate all my enamel jewelry for my business, Bluebird Designs. Throughout the building and district there are many other open studios to explore before your workshop, as well as some exquisite food options. Oh and a few breweries as well;)

Making the pendent was fantastic, and Jessica was happy to share as much about the techniques she uses as I wanted to hear... which was a lot. Thanks, Jessica! I really enjoyed the experience.

This was our first Airbnb experience, and it was excellent. Jessica is a great teacher, her studio is a lovely space, and we had a lot of fun making enamel necklaces. She's a wealth of knowledge about Asheville, told us about some cool local events & places we never would have found out about on our own.

It was a wonderful time. We learned about enameling while making our piece. Jessica is a wonderful teacher as well as a great resource about the area.

Although I’m an Asheville local, I jumped at the chance to learn something new from one of my long-admired artisans. I was lucky enough to have a “private lesson” with Jessica! She did a great job at guiding me through the process of making my Blue Ridge Mountain pendant. Jessica made me feel at ease in her studio and was willing to explain so much of her craft to this novice. I would highly recommend giving yourself the treat of learning something new and, the bonus...walking away with a beautiful new piece of wearable art!

Jessica was very welcoming and accommodating. The experience making the jewelry with a knowledgeable artist was relaxing and rewarding. I would highly recommend visiting Jessica in her amazing studio.

My friend and I drove into Asheville for the weekend and this was our first activity. Jessica was very welcoming! We thought it was so cool that we were able to see her studio. She was more than willing to show/share with us about other projects and skills she has developed. She provides great instruction and encourages creativity! It was also a delight to get to know other people in the group. Everyone was so willing to share recommendations and insider tips about experiencing Asheville. Then, as we went through the rest of our weekend, we were able to feature our new necklaces! This really was such a great way for us to start our trip!
