Open Tuesday-Saturday 10 AM to 6 PM
These workshops are for the beginner, taught from the perspective that the student has no experience in beading and needs help getting started. They are also suitable for anyone who has started beading but would like clarification with the basic techniques of attaching a clasp or making a wire loop on an earring.
Knotting can be incorporated into your designs to achieve many different looks. The project in each workshop will be done in a different technique or material.
I not only love the beads, pendants, jewelry and supplies, I appreciate the classes Joy offers. I have learned how to make many different kinds of necklaces, bracelets, and rings and I still haven’t taken all of her classes. Great place to visit to check out what’s new.
Get started in off loom weaving with a bead weaving workshop. Bead weaving is popular and has endless possibilities.
Resin is fun, easy and is the perfect outlet for your creative soul. Add something new to your jewelry designs with resin.
Metal fabrication has become very popular among beaded jewelry artist and is now much easier to learn due to the ever growing use of butane torches. The following workshops can all be completed using one or the other of two size torches. Basic Folding and Basic Soldering are the 2 classes I recommend starting with if you have no experience in soldering.
I began the process with basic classes with Joy as my teacher. She provided instruction about techniques, materials and tools. Her store was a provider of all my jewelry supplies and lots of creative inspiration. I have come to visit her store every Saturday for supplies. We have become good friends over the years and participated in shows together. Not only does the store provide for needed supplies, but Joy’s jewelry offers great inspirations. To say she is a talented person is an understatement.
Wire Wrapping classes are definitely some of the most popular classes. There is a wide range to choose from. If you have limited or no experience in wire wrapping, Link-to-Link is a great place to start.
