ORIENTATION CLASS


ORIENTATION TO BEADS & JEWELRY FINDINGS
Part 1. Preview


This ORIENTATION TO BEADS & JEWELRY FINDINGS Class
is a series of 18 video tutorials with over 5 1/2 hours of introductory materials about all types of beads, metals, clasps and stringing materials for the beader and jewelry maker.


These tutorials are taught from the "Design Perspective."

That is, these tutorials are designed to teach you the kinds of choices Beaders and Jewelry Artists make when creating jewelry.
These tutorials are not only a presentation of facts and information.
They are also an introduction to ideas about design, and
they are a tale of how one begins to learn and to work with beads and make jewelry.

Take the ORIENTATION CLASS
at Be Dazzle Beads
in Nashville.

View these online.

This entire Orientation series is also
available for
purchase on DVD.
