Students will create a one-of-a-kind necklace loosely based on the style of a Native American dream catcher. Recycled jewelry and natural materials will be used to create these necklaces. Students should bring any broken earrings or necklaces they’d like to incorporate into their pieces. Students can also consider picking up materials they find outdoors such as bark, feathers, or pieces of rusted metal to bring to add to the finished pieces.
