Jewelry Workshop

Bead, Wrap, Chain & Etch

with Max Goodman
Jewelry Workshop
Build a broad skill base for getting started making beautiful, timeless jewelry. This is the perfect class for beginners to test many different types of techniques, from beading to wire wrapping and beyond.

Jewelry artist Max Goodman will lead you through four fundamental techniques you can use to create a variety of unique accessories.

Max will show you how to string pearls, stones and beads as you master pearl knotting, as you learn about rhythm and flow in jewelry design. Discover wire wrapping as Max leads an up-close demonstration on how to link various elements using silver wire, then get into chain making — a seemingly intricate process that turns simple metal jump rings into exquisite strands. Finally, Max shares her tips and tricks for photo etching, an exciting technique used to transfer images to metal.

All of the projects in this course are designed for jewelers with a home studio, and include detailed information on tools and materials. Max's expert advice and encouragement will set you on the path to creating your own elegant jewelry.

Max is a great teacher. The material is very well organized and logical and Max shows things clearly. This is my first Craftsy class, I'm just not one to take video courses, but this one has changed my mind! I've discovered that I love working with jump rings. Who knew?
