Jewelry Workshop with Kathleen DiResta

In this workshop with Kathleen DiResta, you will make your own beaded necklace with a pendant.  You'll learn how to texture a brass or copper disc and be able to personalize it with an initial or your own design.  (Sterling silver discs are available for an additional $10.) You will then string faceted crystal beads onto memory wire, elastic, or fishing line (your choice) with your pendant to make a fabulous necklace! Materials and resource list will be provided.

A little bit about Katheleen DiResta, jewerly designer extraordinaire...
While finishing her BFA in sculpture and art history at SUNY New Paltz, Kathleen took her first job as a jeweler in the summer of 1991, and has been creating unique designs ever since. Her line of playful, geometric jewelry has been featured in books and magazines, selling nationally at galleries and high end craft shows. Locally, you can find her at her studio in Glen Head where she hand crafts her jewelry and works on custom pieces for clients. For more information, visit
