Let's put it all together! Now that you have acquired a great foundation in wireworking, let's see what you can make!
This class is designed for you to create your own project, based on what you have learned from Levels 1, 2 and 3. Want to make a hand-made chain necklace or bracelet? Want to make more intricate drop earrings? Then bring in your project ideas, imagination, sketches, pictures - whatever!
Personal instruction will be available to help you through conceptual design and the tough spots. Consider this to be your "Graduation Class" from all three previous levels and a huge spring-board into a wonderful new world of jewelry design!
Instructor will provide all gauges of wire in copper and brass, assorted beads and forming materials to create projects.
Optional: Students may bring any beads, crystals, seed beads, etc. they would like to incorporate.
Experience level: Advanced Beginner/Intermediate** 6 maximum per Class Ages 18-up
* A Word about the Tool Kit The student may choose between purchasing a complete toolkit for wire-working or chainmaille classes from the instructor or purchase and bring their own. These tools are necessary for all wire-working and chainmaille classes and need to be purchased prior to the first class.
The one time fee for the wire-working toolkit purchased from the instructor is $30.00. This includes:
1 Round Nose Pliers
1 Chain Nose Pliers
1 Nylon Jaw Pliers
1 Side Cutter
Please note: If you decide to purchase these tools on your own (or even bring in your own), they need to be "non marring" pliers, meaning that they have no grooves, serrations or "teeth" inside the jaws of the pliers. Michael's and Hobby Lobby both carry these tools, used specifically in jewelry work. Sometimes, these tools can be found at home improvements stores, but they tend to be heavier and not well suited for beginning jewelry classes (causing hand strain).
There will also be specialty tools provided by the instructor for in-class use.
Please indicate your preference of purchase when signing up for class, and remember, this kits can be used for any current and future wire-working classes.
** Student should know Levels 1, 2 and 3 of Wire Working or equivalent.
