Wire Loops & Jump Ring Connections

June 30, 2021 @ 10:30 am 12:30 pm

Wire Loops & Jump Ring Connections

This is the perfect introductory class for students to learn basic jewelry making techniques using wire. You will learn a technique for making simple loops with wire as well as how to properly use jump rings to connect units. You can get very creative; the styles shown in the photo is just one of a million combinations! This technique is particularly wonderful for those interested in working with natural stones, crystals and Venetian glass.


Instructor: Bernadette

Technique: Wire loops & jump ring connections

Difficulty Level: Beginner
New to beading? This is the perfect class for you! Beginner classes will teach you all the basics; no previous experience is necessary. These classes are small in size so you’ll get plenty of teacher time. You’ll begin to familiarize yourself with the terminology of jewelry making and where applicable, start to understand how to read patterns.
