Girl Scout Junior Jeweler Badge Workshop
This workshop is specifically designed in conjunction with the badge requirements. Each scout will have a packet to work from throughout the workshop. Depending on age level, the packet provides corresponding readings, graphics, note taking space, and questions.
Part One: Getting Inspired
The workshop opens with a presentation of different types of jewelry. Scouts will learn about the materials, techniques, cultures, styles, and more. The presentation will transition into a conversation and attempt to have each scout identify what they like or find inspiring.
Part Two: Make Jewelry With Metal
Miss Emily will explain safety and proper use of materials. The scouts will each create a caged stone pendent.
Part Three: Turn Everyday Objects Into Jewelry
Scouts will discuss the benefits and importance of repurposing materials. A variety of found and natural materials will be provided to use alone or alongside beads. Scouts are invited to bring any objects that they would like to use or share.
Part Four: Create Jewelry Inspired By Culture
After looking at what jewelry symbolizes in other cultures, scouts will create a piece of jewelry with a personal symbolic meaning.
Part Five: Make a Sparkling Gift
Using their new skills, scouts have the opportunity to create a piece of jewelry to give as a gift.
