Jewellery Making 201

Instructor: Pamela Kearns

Course outline: So you’ve learned the basics and now want to kick up your skills. This class will take your crimping and loop-making skills further to create some additional bracelets that will all translate well into necklaces and more! This class will focus more on design rather than technique.

The first project we’ll do is a 3-strand bracelet. The instructor will provide the 3-ring tube clasp, some simple 3-strand connectors and the beading wire and findings you will need to complete the bracelet.

The second bracelet we’ll do will expand your wrapped-loop/simple loop skills to create a bracelet using rings and other connecting shapes. The instructor will provide a limited selection of rings and connecting shapes and the finding, including jump rings and lobster clasp to complete your bracelet.

For both projects you will provide your own beads, crystals, charms and any other goodies you would like to include on your bracelets.

Skill level: Beginner Plus

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.
