    Looking to design and make jewelry that is unique, original and really speaks from your heart? Want to create your own looks in your jewelry designs and move beyond copy-cat designs and set your own trend? Not sure if you have the artistic ability to make good jewelry designs? Take this important step in making great jewelry by finding your true inspirations and ideas, that "spark" of creativity that will lead you to make jewelry that others will want to wear. Whether you are a budding maker or experienced craftsperson, this course goes beyond technical expertise or mechanics, and unlocks the door to original ideas that are just waiting for you to tap into them.

    I created this course specifically based on the most common issue my students face - the notion that they aren't creative or don't have original ideas. If you have faced that, or looked at someone else's work you admire and say "I could never do that", you are not alone. The real issue is not that you aren't artistic or creative, but that no one has shown you how or where to begin. Based on my 30 plus years of experience as an artist, maker and teacher, I can show you how to jump start your own creativity. I focus on finding your artistic voice, to tell your own story in the process of making jewelry.

    This is not a technical course on graphic design or drawing skills. This is designed to gently coach you to find your muse, and then how to translate your ideas into tangible reality. If you need training or coaching in the techniques used to create jewelry, then I will happily set up private lessons, either in person or online, for you to learn sound jewelry skills. (See my other listing "Metalsmithing Classes" for more.)

    This is a 5 session class, divided into 30 and 60 minute segments. After each segment, you will have practice time to complete the exercises given. All you do to get started is sign up, pay for the course, then send me your email address. I will then send you additional materials and instructions, including a brief questionnaire, plus the starting date options for you to choose. Once that is set up, I will send you a link to the Zoom platform for the live sessions.
