Affordable custom jewelry and precious metal clay

Jewelry & PMC Classes

October 7, 2013 | Comments Off

Have you ever wished you could design and craft your own jewelry?  Have you ever thought about creating your own designs in pure silver?

I regularly offer classes and demonstrations in both jewelrymaking and precious metal clay, or “PMC.”

Jewelrymaking – I offer beginning and advanced classed in designing and assembling necklaces, earrings, bracelets, pins and other jewelry.  A typical class consists of two four-hour sessions, with a usual maximum of eight students – this allows for plenty of personal attention and guidance.

Students learn tool selection and use, jewelry design fundamentals, how to choose and incorporate components to realize a design, and crafting tips and secrets.  I also tell students where to buy components – beads, findings, mineral specimens, pendants, pearls, etc. – and how to get the best deal.  At the completion of a June’s Jools jewelrymaking class, each student leaves with several pieces of their own design, made by their own hands!

A good basic collection of jewelrymaking tools.  Students in my classes have access to use all these and many more specialized tools.

Precious Metal Clay – As a certified PMC instructor, I am qualified to teach beginning and advanced classes in this exciting medium, where you can shape the clay-like PMC into virtually any design you desire, then it’s fired at high temperature to become a pure silver creation!

The best part is, after you complete a June’s Jools PMC class, you will have several beautiful silver jewelry pieces of your own design to wear and treasure forever, or give as special gifts!

Demonstrations – Several times a year, I set up free demonstrations to show the general public what PMC is all about.  I also am invited to show PMC techniques to groups such as clubs, arts organizations and business groups.
