This is a practical class, so each week we will go through a new technique that can be used within beaded jewellery design. We will start by learning how to create a beaded rosary chain. Using the skills we’ve learnt we will make a wire wrapped piece of jewellery, incorporating beads, followed by chandelier earrings and a tree of life pendant. For the last session we will learn the basics of chain maille. Every session you will create a practice piece of your choice using the materials provided and the skills demonstrated. During the course there will be on-going discussions and examples of wire working, with examples and advice of what wire to use when & the best tools to use. There will be an emphasis on sharing knowledge and experience, through discussion, show and tell and group crit. , The tutor will facilitate group discussions and work with the students one-to-one and in groups.
