I began putting together some jewelry making tutorials a couple of years ago in an effort to provide affordable online (downloadable) lessons for metalsmithing techniques so that people could learn a new technique relatively easily, be able to ask questions (I’m available via email), and do it all on their own time and in their own studio.
In 2013 I began offering private lessons of beginner metals techniques. Working together, we will develop an agenda that meets your needs taking into account your present experience, the direction you’d like to go with your work, and our combined tools. If you are interested in one-on-one teaching in the MD, DC, VA, PA, NJ, DE area, please use the contact tab up top to get in touch. (We can also arrange a group workshop in your studio.)
The following jewelry making tutorials are all step by step with detailed photographs showing not only what the piece looks like along the way, but the tool position during the process as well. I am available through email to answer any questions about the jewelry making technique, tools, or materials that I use in the process of these tutorials.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
As of this time, tutorials are available for purchase through the Jewelry Artists Network Website. Once payment is made, tutorials are available for download IMMEDIATELY! Download links will be active for 48 hours once payment is made (or cleared in the event of e-check through paypal). You should also receive a confirmation email containing the same download links. (again, links are active for 48 hours) My contributions to the site are:
The Jewelry Artists Network website hosts many jewelry tutorials from other artists as well. There are more Metalsmithing tutorials, and Wire Jewelry Tutorials, and various other jewelry making tutorials.
In person teaching is custom designed to suit your needs, please use the contact form to discuss options.
