Knit Wire Jewelry with Johanna Gorman-Baer


Modern and traditional at the same time, knit wire jewelry combines simple knitting with a totally unfamiliar type of material, creating a distinctive piece of jewelry you can wear with pride, or gift to a favorite person.

This class will be presented online via Zoom.
