Unfinished wood is a fabulous material to create your own jewelry since it's so easy to personalize. Tracey-Renee Hubbard is a jewelry designer and founder of Scotchbonnet!, an accessories brand known for bright colors and vibrant patterns. Jewelry with wooden accents makes up a large part of her line, and in this class she shows you how to make a pair of earrings and a necklace with wooden charms. Learn how to drill your own holes into wood, paint it to match your personal aesthetic, and attach hardware to bring your accessories together.
