and then they inked them, drilled holes in them, and made pendants for a
They also learned how to properly use a jewelry saw...they wrapped copper
wire around a dowel, then cut off links to make jump rings. They made

They learned to bend wire over a dowel and make earring findings...then bend
the wire in a decorative design to make earrings...also added beads.
