Event Details

This is a class where you can kick off your heels, grab a glass of wine and have fun with your friends creating these lovely trees which are so much fun to make and customize! This tree pendant is the perfect thing to kick start you in learning how to wire wrap. Register here.

You will receive step by step instruction on how to make these little beauties, learn basic tool use and wire wrapping techniques. You will get to personalize your pendants by choosing the which of stones you will use for your “leaves”. Let’s have a joyful evening expressing our creative sides and making some beautiful Tree Pendants that are as unique as we are!

SIGN UP WITH Friends, Family, or Teammates!! This is a fun class that is best experienced with good wine and good conversation and will be excellent bonding for any relationship. Shayna brings a box wine to share with the 21+ crowd, but if you don’t like wine (or cheap wine, you are totally allowed to BYOB. It goes without saying but…please drink responsibly.

Your ticket secures your place in the class, as well as materials that will be used for the creation of your pendants. Please sign up BEFORE 2 pm on the day of class… this is very important so the teacher can prep enough wire for each student.


  • 5 people per class
  • 3-hour class- there is a good chance we won’t use up the whole class period, but everyone works at their own pace and this will ensure that all questions will get answered, and if there is additional time we can go over some other design variations that you can try at home.
  • Materials- COPPER wire 16g and 24g, various stone chip beads.
  • Tools use – needle nose pliers, round nose pliers, wire cutter ( if you have any of these tools at home and would prefer to use your own to gain practice/ better familiarize yourself with them, by all means, bring them )
