All classes cover the same material.
Classes are held in my Decatur studio. The small class size lets me tailor lessons to individual needs. All experience levels are welcome. One make up class per session is offered during the monthly open studio.
Findings: sister hooks, and brooch backs
(see Pinterest board for inspiration)
Sister hooks are useful for chain bracelets, or necklaces; simple and clean with some design possibilities.
Handmade pin backs are sooo much nicer than store bought. There are a zillion ways to do it, let’s design one to fit your style.
Settings: basket setting for round and fancy faceted stones, simple prongs for cabs of all shapes.
If you have already learned the round basket setting then use your skills to capture a fancy shape for a pendant, charm, or earrings.
As you desire; a discussion to effectively incorporate your gems in a brooch or pendant design.
