A few weeks ago I signed up for Wire-Wrapped Stones, Crystals and Clusters, a class over at Craftsy. These earring are the first project in the class.

The teacher, Aga Kruk, explains everything clearly and makes all the projects quite doable.  There’s a section on Basics at the beginning of the course and she really guides you through everything, step-by-step. It’s nice to be able to re-watch something you didn’t quite get the first time, too.

This wire wrapped circle is such an interesting component, and Aga shows you many different ways to use it.  I’m going to try using a larger one as a necklace component soon.

Although I’ve been making jewelry and wire-wrapping for quite some time now, Aga introduced me to several tools I’d never considered and showed some techniques I hadn’t thought of, so the course was well worth the time and money.

The awesome thing about Craftsy classes is that you can watch them whenever you want, as many times as you want… forever.  Once you’ve purchased a class, it doesn’t expire.  Also, you get printable course materials, you can ask the teacher questions, make your own notes on the videos and see projects made by other students. I love being able to sit at my computer and learn new stuff!

K, I’m off to do the next project, a pair of chandelier earrings, this time making the frames out of wire.  Should be fun. 🙂

Happy creating!

  1. Those are lovely. Very nicely done. I love your photo set, too! How’s the book? It looks like an old one. Is it any good? 😀

    1. I had a feeling you’d notice the book. 🙂 It a Bobbsey Twins from 1948. Two of them were in the free pile at church and they were just what I’d been looking for to photograph my jewelry.

      1. It makes a great prop, especially being light, fun reading. I don’t think it would work as well to display your beautiful earrings on the works of Calvin, or something. O.o

        1. Lol, I hadn’t thought of it that way. I was just considering what the book looked like, not it’s content. But, you make a good point.

  2. your ear rings are so beautiful! I love that about a class, someone else always has a different way or idea that you didn’t already know. Even the simplest of classes I find out something new or spot a new tool!
