Quick and Easy Wire Bezel

Quick and Easy Wire Bezel!  Wrap a rock with wire to wear as a pendant, no holes needed!

Another easy class to incorporate stones!  Learn this easy technique to attractively bezel cabochons without the need for soldering or torches.

This is a beginner class, so no experience is needed.  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 is included in this class.  You will need to purchase a cabochon from Melody’s great selection.  Or, you can bring one! Tools will be provided for you to use during class.
