Learn a quick and easy bezeling technique and THEN, go on to embellish your bezeled stone with lavish bands of color for a completely unique effect.

This class is Intermediate level, so it will be super helpful for you to have made several wire projects in the past, or taken at lease one of Melody’s classes before.  Know stuff like simple and wrapped loops for earrings.  All levels of students will enjoy the projects and the opportunity to take a class with a world class instructor.

Instructor is Melody MacDuffee, author of three books on wirework, as well as several more recent booklets and dozens of individually published jewelry designs.  Melody has taught her distinctive jewelry-making techniques all over the U.S. and as far away as West Africa, where she ultimately co-founded a non-profit that provides paid training and steady jobs at a living wage for disadvantaged young adults of the Krobo tribe. Her Craftsy instructional video, Filigree Jewelry with a Twist!, came out in 2015, and she is a frequent guest artist on Jewelry Television’s Jewel School.

Wire and beads are included in this class. Cabochons are NOT included, but Melody always brings a fabulous selection with her trunk show at great prices!  Tools will be provided for you to use during class.

Covid Protocols during class:  In all of Melody’s classes you will be required to properly wear a mask for the duration of the class.  If you do not feel you are able to do this, this may not be the right class for you.   If you can’t wear a mask for several hours, or just can’t come to classes right now, you may wish to inquire about Melody’s online classes, available other dates and times, directly through Melody.

This is a 4 hour class!  The class time spans the lunch hour, but we will NOT be including a lunch break.  You are welcome to bring a sandwich and stash it in our fridge in case you get hungry!
