Jewelry Bootcamp

ID : 45179   
« back to classes page
Join us for three fast and furious afternoons of jewelry basics.  We'll look at commercially made findings and how they work, and then we'll make our  own.  We'll see what makes a design wearable or not, and  how to make a good  design even better.  Tools, beads, wire and lots more come under scrutiny. This class is for beginners and those who want to push their jewelry work into new realms.  The more you make, the more you'll learn, so expect homework. Students must purchase approximately $20 of materials to bring to the first class:  round nose pliers, chain  nose pliers, flush or semi-flush cutter, 20 gauge wire and a handful of beads. See details in Special Notice.

Please read:  You will need to bring your own tools/materials: round nose pliers, chain nose pliers, flush or semi-flush cutter, 20 gauge wire and a handful of beads. Materials are approximately $30-35. Wire note: Please look for smooth shiny wire in 20 gauge. Round, not square or half-round. Plated (silver or gold) copper wire works very well, aluminum doesn't. Nicole brand has a good inexpensive wire, available at craft stores. Avoid anything marked "beading wire". Please purchase your wire at a craft or bead store, not at Home Depot.
