Jewellery Making 101

Instructor: Pamela Kearns

Course Outline: Do you want to create jewellery for yourself but have no idea where to start? Join Pam for this 'newbie' course and discover just how easy creating jewellery can be. Participants will be able to create up to three of pairs of earrings and a bracelet. You'll learn how to use headpins, open and close jump rings, create wrapped and simple loops, and discover how to use crimps.

Silver-plated findings, metal wire and beading wire are included as part of the kit fee. Note: the class size will be kept small -- no more than 6 students -- so each can receive personal attention!

Need to Bring: Creativity & Enthusiasm; a selection of beads and stones for your projects

About Pamela Kearns

Although a seed beader at heart, Pam has been branching out into new techniques and combining the best of all worlds into her creations. She sells her work and peyote patterns in stores, shows and through Etsy. She had her first project published in the May/June 2013 issue of Beadwork. Pam taught at the 2014, 2015, 2016 Bead and Button Shows in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and has been accepted to teach five classes at the 2017 Bead and Button Show.

A problem solver, Pam thoroughly enjoys teaching and inspiring students to think beyond basic techniques encouraging students to stamp their own vision on projects.

As a new endeavour in her own teaching career (and fellow 'Lefty'), Pam has started to include 'Lefty-Alerts' within her class instructions ensuring that everyone is able to complete the techniques easily.
