Jewelry Making with Wellspring Living

IMG_1034.jpg

This past Friday we had a jewelry-making session with the girls from Wellspring Living and metal artist, Cat Goolsby. Wellspring Living helps Domestic Sex Trafficking victims (DMST) develop the courage to move forward and the confidence to succeed. 

Nine girls came to learn how to make rings and necklace pendants. We used copper wire and pliers to shape rings and pendents into the Egyptian spiral. No other tools were used. This was truly a hands-on jewelry making session. The Spiral represents the pattern of growth and evolution. It represents infinity and continuity which symbolize innocence and rebirth.  

 

The girls had a great time. After overcoming the frustrations of learning a new skill, they really dove in and made some beautiful pieces they were proud to wear or gift to loved ones.

Metal Wire Workshop with Wellspring Living

September brought Wellspring Living back to the Paint Love studio for another metal workshop with the amazing jewelry artist Cat Goolsby!  She taught the girls about texturing and forming wire. The results were beautiful! The girls created necklaces, pendants, and wire sculptures.
