Earring Workshop 1
Earring Workshop 1
There are 2 basic techniques that allow you to make endless pieces of jewelry with beads! In this earring class we will focus on the 2 techniques, structure, simple design and construction. You can come with an idea in mind, some pictures from magazines, pinterest, catalogs or come fresh with an open creative eye. We will spend a good amount of time practicing the wire work techniques with a discussion on its many applications before we dive into your personal creations.
Sue will provide the beads, materials, instruction and tools (limited to current stock so you may need to be flexible with design). If you wish to bring your own beads, please be aware they may not work with our project so flexibility is necessary.

The Teacher - Sue Leveille
I've been making jewelry and teaching jewelry making for over 20 years. Learning is an opportunity to open up and experience something new. I create an environment that is relaxed, fun, compassionate and supportive because when you are learning in a positive environment - you may find yourself seeking out more of that feeling or creating it yourself. The jewelry becomes a token that creating positive change starts with a small step, made by you.
