Jewelry Summer Camp for Kids 8-12

Looking for a great activity for your 3rd – 6th grader this summer?  Check out the Danaca Design jewelry camp! This week-long camp teaches cool jewelry-making techniques such as bead making and stringing, wire working, texturing, stamping, and riveting metal! In addition, we will explore the fundamentals of composition and color theory while learning to use a variety of basic hand tools.  Using polymer clay, Shrinky Dinks, seed beads, and copper and brass wire and sheet metal, we will create a variety of jewelry pieces students can wear proudly. After all, nothing is quite as fun as saying, “I made this!” Rings and bracelets and brooches, oh my! Come have fun with us for a week in July! No experience necessary, returning students welcome. This class is taught by Tegan Wallace, who has been teaching jewelry making at the elementary and middle school level for several years. Materials included
