Rocket City Jewelers Classes

2024

RCJ is open to all HGMS members 16 and older.  All skill levels are welcome!  No certification is required, but experience using jewelry tools is a plus.  We offer one class a month with 4 opportunities to finish the project.

The 3rd and 4th quarter classes are listed below!  We’re continuing to offer wire, chainmaille, and metals projects.  To sign up for a class, please email Theresa at rocketcityjewelers@gmail.com a month before class.  Include your name, contact info, and the class(es) you want.  You can also sign up at RCJ meetings and monthly HGMS meetings.  FYI:  There are 2 more chances to finish the Upside-Down Wrapped Cab pendant:  June 19th, 6-9p, and June 26th, 2-5p

Note:  Summers in North Alabama are known for stormy weather.  Should severe weather occur on an RCJ meeting day, the meeting will be canceled, and Judy will notify the group.
