Jewellery Making 101, Part C: Crimping

Creating a secure crimp is essential for bracelets and necklaces!

Join Pamela Kearns to learn how to crimp and explore the relationship between the size of the beading wire and the size of the crimp bead to create that needed security. Along the way, you’ll also learn about the various findings – wire guardians, crimp covers, jump rings and clasps – to complete either a bracelet or necklace. We’ll also discuss elements of design and colour to make your jewellery standout from the crowd! Time permitting, we’ll also create a matching pair of earrings.

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 had her first project published in the May/June 2013 issue of Beadwork. Pam taught at the 2014, 2015 and 2016 Bead and Button Shows in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. A problem solver, Pam thoroughly enjoys teaching and inspiring students to think beyond basic techniques encouraging students to stamp their own vision on projects. To ensure that all students can accomplish the techniques, Pam (also a 'southpaw) includes 'Lefty-Alerts' within her class instructions.
