Dragonfly Designs, a jewelry company in South San Francisco, announced its new spring and summer camps for children ages six and up. The company, which also sells handmade jewelry for everyday use and special occasions, is offering week-long, spring and summer camp sessions where children learn jewelry making techniques as well as enjoy morning yoga sessions and educational hikes along San Bruno Mountain near the home-based studio.

During each camp session, boys and girls are encouraged to explore their creativity and are introduced to interesting color and texture while improving hand eye coordination, small muscle development and pattern making skills - all in a relaxed and joyful environment. Each day, children create beautiful jewelry to take home as well as special projects to coincide with the current season. Children are introduced to a range of age appropriate jewelry making techniques and tool usage including copper etching, enameling, felting, stamping and dapping, bead stringing, wire work, resin pendants, finger knitting, hair jewelry and more.
Camp sessions cost $335.00, including all materials, and are held Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in a modern, safe, home studio located in South San Francisco. Half day camps are also available. Early morning and afternoon care is available for an additional $50.00 from 8:00 to 9:00 a.m. or from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
