Make Stuff, Reduce Stress and Live Longer!

You heard it right - take my class and you will live longer! Sound like a midnight info-mercial? Well keep reading.

I will be teaching Free-Style Jewelry Design at Mud Spun Arts Center in Belchertown on Wednesday nights from 6:30-8:30. This is an ongoing drop-in class with a six week commitment. So if you have to miss a class, you can make it up when it is convenient for you.

You can learn new techniques and create heart-felt gifts with your own hands.

Topics covered are:
  • Basic beading
  • Basic wire work
  • Advanced jewelry design
  • Creating pendants
  • Creating jewelry components
Materials used are:
  • Glass beads
  • Natural stone beads
  • Sterling silver components
  • Precious Metal Clay*
  • Fine Silver*
The cost for the workshop is $160 – that’s about $25 per class including high end materials! Students will be able to create many pieces of wearable art during their six-week excursion.

*Additional cost for precious metal clay and fine silver.

An added benefit to a class like this is living a longer life. Sounds funny to say, but the truth is, people who have less stress in their lives live longer. And gathering together, making new friends and creating beautiful things with one’s own hands will definitely lower stress levels!

Classes begin Wednesday, October 28 at 6:30 pm, so contact me if you'd like to join us for an enjoyable night out!

I'm also available for Girl's Night Out - beading parties and home jewelry shopping parties!

Great to see you sharing your gifts

Sorry its out of my reach, time and financially. Sounds like a good deal though.

Your silver work is amazing.

I would be interested in knowing if my symbols will transmit energy once done in silver. It looks like you can get some very fine lines.

What is the process and cost of creating a silver piece as an experiment.

perhaps you can direct me to a video that would help me understand the process of creating something from my drawings.
