Learning to make your own beautiful beaded necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings is fun and easy with Annie's Learn to Bead & Make Jewelry 101. Beading and jewelry making is a great craft for anyone of any age because it's an easy and inexpensive hobby to get into. All you need are a few basic tools, beading wire and a handful of pretty beads, and you're all set to create your own handmade jewelry. And who doesn't love a handcrafted piece of jewelry to wear or share?

In this online beading and jewelry-making class, designer and instructor Keri Lee Sereika starts by explaining the most common beading supplies and tools, taking the mystery out of the packed beading aisle at large craft stores. You'll learn what supplies and materials to look for to begin your jewelry-making adventure.

Next, Keri demonstrates and explains all the basic and essential beading and jewelry-making techniques in excellent detail. You'll learn:
  • How to string and secure beads onto wire
  • How to make simple and wrapped loops
  • How to properly open and close jump rings
  • How to work with chain of different thicknesses
  • How to make floating beads and floating bead groups
  • How to work with different ear wires
  • And much more
Throughout this class, Keri demonstrates the fundamental techniques needed to make the 10 delightful projects included with the class. Soon you'll be making necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings for yourself and as attractive gifts for family and friends!

I loved this class. Very easy to understand and can pause as you complete your own pieces along with her. Definitely look forward to "Learn to Bead and Make Jewelry 202." She is an excellent instructor. Camera angles were awesome so you can clearly watch each technique.
