The name Bali Ha’i often brings to mind the myth of an exotic and mystical island, barely visible on the distant horizon. Located in the South Pacific Ocean, the actual island of Bali is home to some of the most unique silversmiths in the world. Each student will create their own exotic bracelet by using their chosen combination of sterling silver and 14k gold-filled wires, and then discover how to enhance the design with handcrafted 20k vermeil and/or Bali silver beads. Skills taught include Dale’s famous wire-wrapping mantra, how to properly straighten and bundle wires, making a hook & eye clasp, and much more. The class fee includes all necessary silver and 14kgf wires, Bali silver and vermeil beads, use of instructor’s tools in class and written follow-up instructions.
