From Here to Infinity Collar (2 days)

April 27 @ 6:00 pm - April 28 @ 2:30 pm

Cdn $70.00 +Kit fee: $40.00, payable to the instructor the day of the class.

Course outline: A statement piece with texture and dimension. You will learn to create an infinity style frame and the instructors signature Framed Beads with medium-gauge wire and stone bead pods. The infinity links and framed bead-pods are joined together with cold connections. Learning to hammer-finish frames and fundamentals of wire work, such as wire loop formation (simple eye-pin), and tips on measuring and working with wire. You will be working with four different gauges of wire, natural stones and small crystal accents. Working with heavier gauge wire is a skill which can take your wire work to the next level.

This is a two day class and will be held Friday, April 27; 6:00 – 9:00pm, and Sunday, April 28; 10:30am – 2:30pm.

Skill level: Intermediate

Prerequisite: Experience and comfort working with medium gauge wire will be beneficial to the student. If no experience, I highly recommend taking the Chevron Along Bracelet class. All skill levels will enjoy learning to use the wrap & tap pliers by Eurotool.

Technique: Wirework

Bring to class: Students should bring a Sharpie and magnification as required. Students may use the in-class tools available to them. We will be using a bench block or anvil, chasing hammer, 2-pair of flat nose pliers, round nose pliers, nylon jaw flat pliers, flush cutters and specialized pliers: small wrap & tap pliers by Eurotool.
