Hitting the beach is one of the most popular things to do in San Diego, but there is much more to enjoy at the coast beyond getting in the water and catching some rays. The beautiful San Diego beaches are great spots to take outdoor classes, and a beachfront jewelry class is an excellent opportunity to get outside, enjoy the great weather, and try out a new hobby.
Beachfront jewelry classes are now available as a FunGig. During the class you will learn how to make a wire pendant from a friendly wire wrapper who has seven years of experience she is willing to share with you. A jewelry making lesson on the beach is a great way to spend some time with friends and learn a new hobby. Not only that, it could also be the first step towards starting your own jewelry business, selling at farmers markets or on sites like Etsy. The scenic setting of the San Diego coastline helps students focus on their new craft while also relaxing and appreciating the beauty of nature that can be used as an inspiration. If you are looking for fun new things to do in San Diego this weekend, a jewelry making class on the coast is for you.
The FunGig costs only $48 per person and includes all of the materials you will need and a two to two-and-a-half hour lesson. Classes are held in Ocean Beach on Saturdays and Sundays between 9:00am and 6:00pm. Expert jewelry make Ret Tedford will provide stones, crystals, Palo Santo wood, wire tools, and water as you and your friends and classmates work alongside one another making a similarly patterned pendant that you can take home when you’re finished. You will probably want to bring your own beach towel or yoga mat to sit on as well as some snacks or drinks and some personal stones or crystals that you might like to put on your pendant. Choose to wear your pendant and show it off to others or to give it to a friend or loved one so they have something you made personally for them. Beachside classes are some of the most uniquely San Diego things to do, and a beachfront jewelry class is an incredible way to take advantage of living in such a beautiful place while also acquiring a new skill and discovering a fun hobby.
