What To Bring
> Option 1 <
Nothing! Everything you need will be provided, including cans, but bringing some of your own items might be a good idea.
> Option 2 <
BRING YOUR OWN...
Already know what kind of can you want to use? Bring your own! If possible, bring multiples. That allows for more flexibility when matching patterns for left and right earrings. It also provides a backup for any mishaps.
Many tools will be shared, so if you have your own jewelry pliers or small scissors (best for cutting the cans), don’t hesitate to bring them along!
If you plan on designing a pendant, you might want to bring your own chain to match color/style, etc.
