February 17 and 18/Sunday & Monday-- Have I got a lot of awesome news for these two shows!! Both Patti Bullard and Carol Crye will be debuting their Brand NEW instructional DVDs!!
Lampwork Artist Carol Crye has been motivated by the arts since she was a little girl and loves working with color as she creates beautiful glass beads using imagination, fire and just a touch of magic. A surgical nurse by day, Carol’s studio is located in the Knoxville, TN area. She is bringing her lampworking skills to Jewel School in our new studio.
Within "The Art of Lampwork", THREE New individual Jewel School DVDs, Carol calmly coaxes students along as they learn the joy of forming glass beads and turning them into bumpy beauties that will play happily in bracelets, necklaces and anywhere else a jewelry maker chooses to add a unique twist to her designs.
I have had the pleasure of taking a personal class with Carol; she is a patient instructor and an amazing artist. I am so very excited about the release of her new DVDs!
Inventor, Artist and Instructor Patti Bullard will not only have her great Wubbers pliers to offer, but she will also be debuting her NEW DVD series, titled "Metalworking 101". Patti asked me to share the following with you:
"Metalworking 101" is a set of six DVD's plus a bonus DVD. Here are the titles of the DVD's:
DVD 1: Earring Essentials
DVD 2: Geometric Links Bracelet
DVD 3: Mix & Match Stacking Rings
DVD 4: Mixed Media Collage Pendant
DVD 5: Discover Open Back Bezels
DVD 6: Twinkle Star Bracelet
Bonus: Metalworking 101: Let's Get Started!
"This step-by-step series is perfect for anyone who is interested in getting started with metalworking and honing their jewelry-making skills. The earring, bracelet, ring and pendant projects will teach students such things as how to:
Texture, Stamp, and Dap
Punch and rivet
Solder with sterling, copper, and brass using a simple, refillable torch
Make their own findings such as ear wires, jump rings, and clasps
Size a ring
Easily set a cabochon
Make their own open-back bezels and then how to design with them
Work with the brand new EnCapture Artisan Concrete
Hand polish, tumble polish, and add quick and easy finishing details that will set their work apart
"Metalworking 101 will guide students as they discover the fun of taking simple wire and sheet metal and form it into beautiful finished jewelry. I am so excited to share my knowledge and love for making jewelry with the Jewel School viewers!"
Wow! This sounds like Patti has recorded an entire metal working course for us! Wouldn't you love to be able to make a pendant like hers?
February 20-- Beads, Beads, Beads!! It's Jewel School's Wednesday Bead Show--where our host will offer some great new collections of beads in many shapes, sizes and colors.
