Up-coming NEW classes

Can you believe that we’re almost through January? I can’t! Looking ahead to late-January and February classes, there are several ‘first-time offered’ courses that instructors have developed:

Basic Metalsmithing: Introduction to Sawing and Piercing
Wednesday, January 30; 6:00 – 8:00pm
Instructor: Iris Rogers Melamed

Learning how to use a jeweller’s saw will open up endless possibilities
in jewellery design and construction. In this class you will first learn
about the tools (saw frame, blades and bench pin) followed by
instruction in their proper use. Finally, you will start to develop your
skills by sawing lines, shapes and cutouts. 

Soutache Lesson #2: The Harp Module
Thursday, February 7; 6:00 – 9:00pm
Instructor: Angela Peace

This class teaches The Harp Shape Module and will expand on the skills
learning the Basic Module class. Techniques to be covered include how to
handle the soutache braid, manage tension, place stitches correctly,
maintain the curve, and add multiple beads. These techniques will be
used to make a pair of Harp Shape earrings with design options.

Introduction to Netting
Saturday, February 16; 9:30am – 12:30pm
Instructor: Maria Rypan

Choose your level of initiation into world of netting with richly
textured beads. Start by stringing a combination of beads, turn around
through the accent bead and begin netting. Work top to bottom for full
control of how long to make your beadwork. Hard to believe that simple
vertical netting could produce such a vast array of styles! Dive in!

In the “Simply Luxurious Net” extraordinarily luxurious results are
achieved with the combo of bugle-tipped baubles, picots and occasional
accents of a Swarovski® bicones. This is a great way to get into beading
and learn the different edge finishes. Try the Glitter Earrings next.

A Pair of Bracelets
Saturday, February 16; 9:30am – 12:30pm
Instructor: Cindy Goldrick

Learn how to create beautiful folds in copper and create these two very
different bracelets using the same technique: foldforming. One bracelet
is composed of 1 x 1 inch copper squares joined by basic chain mail. The
other is cut out then folded and formed around a bracelet mandrel. You
can embellish with your own focal if you like.

AND … there are lots more classes than these listed! For more information on all of the classes that BeadFX is offering, go to www.beadfx.com and follow the link to classes.
