Free yourself from the conventional! Fresh, feminine and a little bit funky, my BoHo Hoops are your perfect summer jewelry and the perfect summer jewelry project. These will sweep against your neck and tickle your fancy….make you want to twirl. Build them plain for a simple, classic hoop (if you must wear them to, say…the office) or add gemstones for a glimmer of color.
In this class, you’ll learn to anneal and harden…forge and texture…shaping the metal to your will. You’ll learn how to create two different styles of hoop earrings; BoHo and Abacus as well as how to make perfect ear wires, with a little surprise or two thrown in. Big bonus: this workshop is bursting with tons of technique you’ll be able to use in so many other jewelry making projects. My approach to jewelry making is casual in method, yet I demand perfection from my pieces. I'll show you how to achieve this balance with simple tools and key techniques resulting in distinctive and elegant pieces.
Here is some of what you’ll learn in class with me:
- using a torch
- drawing a bead on wire
- making paddle headpins
- forging and forming
- texturing metal
- tool use
- how to use a simple butane torch
- basic dremel use
You'll have unlimited access to my private classroom including detailed videos that enable you to watch each and every step, close up and personal. You’ll also get downloadable pdf's of tool lists and resources.

As a pioneer in online jewelry making classes, I strive to make sure my workshops are of the highest quality. They include highly detailed videos that you'll be able to watch as many times as you like; no driving, no airfare, no hotels and no schlepping your heavy stuff! You will literally be looking over my shoulder, as I work in my studio. You’ll have continual access to my classroom. Like to work in your jammies?...the videos will be at hand…a click away…any time of day or night, for you to view as many times as you want. My workshops are fluid, friendly, work-at-your-own-pace classes.

Start: March 17, 2017
End: May 31, 2017
The workshop will run for over two full months on my private classroom site. Because I am in the process of packing and moving my home and studio, there will be no instructor participation or social media group. However, I will be offering this class for a longer duration than usual and at a reduced price. All videos will be posted on the first day of class. Videos are not downloadable but, once the videos are posted, students will be able to view them at any time. This means you can work in your jammies at three in the morning, if you choose! PDF's of the complete tools/supplies list will be provided after registration. On the classroom site, you will be able to access the tools and supplies list and watch a few intro videos.
Registration begins March 11, 2017 and will run through April 9, 2017.

If you don't see my email with the log on information, contact me via email: firstname.lastname@example.org, my website, or facebook. If you have not received the log on information within 3 days, and it's not in your spam email folder, that means your server/firewall has rejected it.
