A Note from Aga Kruk, instructor of Wire-Wrapped Stones, Crystals & Clusters
Ever since I started posting my jewelry projects on Craftsy, people have asked me how they can make wire-wrapped jewelry like mine. Now with this online and interactive class, I can show you how. We'll make seven of my designs together. You can ask me questions as you go so I can help you through trouble spots. The tips and methods I show you will not only help you make the projects that I cover in this class, but you can apply them to many other projects. My two biggest pieces of advice are to keep practicing, and use your imagination and be as creative as you can be! My class gives you plenty to practice, and a whole set of skills to let you make beautiful jewelry to wear and give.

I cannot say enough good things about this class! There is an absolute wealth of information given, and all techniques are very clearly explained. Aga's designs are beautiful and inspiring, and she offers many further variations to explore at the end of each class. Aga is so sweet and generous with her time and advice, should you have any questions. I hope Craftsy will have her make many more classes!
Great for beginners

The professor is excellent and the materials and video make it fun and easy to follow along. You really don't need much to get started and it has become a new hobby for me. At the beginning of the class the teacher warns that you may become addicted to it and it's true! I have dabbled in a lot of different crafts over the years, but feel I started this as a beginner and now make gifts for family, friends and myself.

I purchased this class hoping to refresh my long dormant jewellery making skills. Aga is an amazing instructor who explains with great clarity . She has really given me back my enthusiam for the craft and I really enjoy the fact that her designs are timeless and beautiful. This has been money well spent.
Knowledge, Help and News at its best

I have purchased this class almost a year ago. All the projects taught in this class I have already completed, all with really good results. I love them. What´s more Aga brings new ideas and patterns almost every month, so you can go with her far beyond the content of the class itself. In comparison to other classes I have purchsed this is the one with best service and is most alive, so that you really stick to the topic after having completed all classes. I think it is the best course ...
I purchased this class and I was excited to learn. This class far exceeded my expectations. Thorough and interesting and just plain fun. Thanks Aga for making it so fun and informational. I'm having a lot of fun.
