METAL ARTS GUILD OF GEORGIA
Virtual Weekly Class
Intro to Jewelry with Beads
September 14 - November 2, 2020: 11:00am- 12:00pm
(8 week session)
Beading is a great meditation technique as well as a gateway to creating colorful original jewelry. This class will cover materials, tools, techniques and design consideration in a series of project-based classes. Learn how to string a necklace, make a pair of earrings, a bracelet and bezel a cabochon while mastering basic off loom bead weaving stitches. Then dip into Bead Embroidery, Kumihimo and Bead Crochet. No prior experience necessary.
Joyce Ryan has a BFA in Sculpture from the Rhode Island School of Design and an MFA in Graphic Design from Washington University. Her work has been featured in Showcase 500 Beaded Jewelry: Photographs of Beautiful Contemporary Beadwork. Her bead work was inspired by the colors on the feathers of parrots she worked with at a rescue. As they bathed, water droplets would bead up on their feathers and sparkle in the sun like thousands of tiny colored lights. The closest she could get to replicating those colors and textures were with BEADS!
