Jewellery Making 101, Part B: Making Loops
Learn how to make jewellery connections!
Wrapped loops, simple loops and opening/closing jump rings are basic but essential skills in jewellery making, whether you’re working with beads, metalwork or lampwork. Join Pamela Kearns to learn how to make loops and explore the various jewellery-making materials, such as headpins, eyepins and wire and other findings you’ll need. In the process, we’ll focus on making some earrings using your beads and ideas!
