In this beginner level class, learners will be introduced to the basics of making handmade earrings with wire & beads. We will also talk about how to approach designing pieces and how to create jewelry to wear, give as gifts, or even sell. Learners will be expected to purchase some basic tools & supplies in order to participate in this class. NOTE: Learners should have the dexterity to use jewelry tools without assistance. Week #1: * Overview of what tools & supplies you will need to have...
This class is taught in English.
I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts with an emphasis in Metalsmithing. I have been making jewelry myself since I was in high school (I am now 38) and I love making dangly earrings!
Learners will be expected to work on their jewelry projects inbetween classes. The amount of time they spend on that is up to them & their available time, but they should be able to spend enough time to finish up their projects by the 4th week of class.
Learners will be expected to purchase some basic tools & supplies in order to participate in this class. This will be discussed during the first lesson, and will include: * jewelry pliers (at least 1 set of either chain nose or flat nose, as well a set of round nose pliers, is recommended) * flush wire cutters * beads you like & want to use in your earrings * wire (18/20/22/24 gauge aluminum, copper, brass, silver - NO STEEL WIRE, it will ruin your cutters!) - buy wire to fit the holes in your beads * pre-made jump rings, headpins, caps, etc. as desired for your desired earrings * tiny dowel rods for making your own jump rings (optional) These can be found at most crafts stores, as well as online. I will be sharing ideas of where to best find what you need.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Jewelry making involves the use of metal that could possibly have sharp edges, as well as tools that can pinch & cut. By signing their learners up for this class guardians are giving their approval for their learners to use these items for this class.
