We will explore Roman Fold-over, students should be able finish a bracelet and 2 pair of earrings in each. (These ancient beautiful designs are quite different from chainmaille). There should also be time for additional projects or necklace versions of these chains. Tools will be provided for use, if you have your own tools, you are welcome to bring them.
