Shana Astrachan, a San Francisco based designer, has a love for all things handmade, particularly the odd, vintage and crafty kind. Although she is classically trained in traditional metalworking, she loves the challenge of transforming unusual materials into unique wearable and functional objects. Shana's work has been exhibited across the United States and has been featured in numerous jewelry books and magazines. She is an active member in the local Bay Area art community and teaches workshops in both jewelry and makeup. Her creative alter ego, under the name 'Fox & Doll', continues the vintage inspiration through hair and makeup styling along with boutique beauty products. Things that inspire Shana include bold fashion, vintage kitchens, pink bathrooms, glitter plastic, odd 60's and 70's interiors, classic crafts, stripes and polka dots, classic cocktails, bowling, vintage dresses, live music and so much more.
Buying premade ear wires is easy enough, but making your own gives you the ability to get creative with basic shapes and add custom designs to your earrings. Shana shows you techniques as well as the simple tools you will need to create three different styles. She'll also show you how to harden the wire, and finish the end for a comfortable fit in your ear so you will have all the skills to make beautiful and strong ear wires for your earring designs.
