Have you ever wanted to make jewelry for yourself or someone special? I'm teaching a jewelry making class starting in April--so you have until March 24 to sign up. In this class, students will learn how to create sterling silver necklaces, bracelets and pierced earrings that you'll be able to wear home on Day 1. Some basic techniques to be covered are making loops and coils, using a jig, attaching hardware, and oxidizing and texturizing silver. Using silver chain, wire, beads and hardware, students will create jewelry they will be able to wear home the first day of class. Sets of pliers will be supplied and students will be instructed on how to use each pair. If you like beading and want to expand your repertoire using sterling, or if you've never made jewelry before, this class is for you! After learning a few basic techniques, individuals will work independently and at their own speed. Students need to bring their own beads (a minimum of 20 of any material, size, shape, color, etc.) to first class. Note: This course focuses on making women’s jewelry.

Christie McAuley is a self-taught jewelry artist who has sold her jewelry in Nob Hill and at trunk shows in Indianapolis. She's also made custom jewelry for wedding parties, festivals, and gifts. This class, the fourth one taught by Christie, is taught through Albuquerque Academy's Community Academy on Monday and Wednesday evenings 6-8 pm from April 6 -20.
