My Class Dates: Tuesday, June 6 to Thursday, June 8, 2017

Location: Milwaukee WI

This coming spring, June 6-8, take a jewellery making class from Marilyn Gardiner at the Bead&Button Show in Milwaukee WI. Her classes are suitable for jewellery artists at all levels including those at the beginner level, and use Marilyn’s unique jewellery kit designs and her excellent, easy to follow, step-by-step, illustrated instructions. If you like chain mail jewellery then you’ll definitely want to take a class or two.


The Classes

(SCROLL DOWN TO SEE THE PHOTOS!)

All classes offer metal choices that include Argentium Silver (927 sterling), Silver Filled (925/10 sterling silver outer tube with a brass core), Jewelers Bronze (a brass and zinc alloy), and Copper  projects. This is a response to current fashion trends for jewelry in a variety of metals.

All classes emphasize careful work habits and professional-looking work. We’ll discuss how to locate related sources & resources, and we’ll think about creative options for future projects that build on the skills you are learning.

Kits include step-by-step instructions that are clearly illustrated with photos.
Kits also include saw-cut, hardened jump rings that we make ourselves and carefully polish.
