About the course
Come make a fabulous bug pendant with us! In this course Nik is going to show how to construct a caged wire wrapped cabochon setting in the shape of a winged beetle.
We will cover:
- how to shape and build the wire frame
- how to secure the stone in place
- how to do the bead embellishments and so much more!
This project will give you a basic understanding of how to build this particular type of setting and from there you will be able to build many other styles, with a little imagination!
About The Instructor
I was born in Germany but raised in the mountains of Utah for the majority of my life. With this background I loved to learn about and explore different cultures and traditions. A lot of my inspiration comes from learning about these places, and that pushes me to be a better artist. Growing up so close to nature was a great experience that helped form my art style today. I've always loved nature and my life has always been heavily intertwined with it. It's been a goal of mine to always try to recreate the beauty of the natural world. I have always done some form of art, as far back as i can remember. It started at a very young age with drawing and painting, then moved into fashion and design, and currently, my true love, jewelry. Jewelry making had always been a side hobby for me, something I did just for myself. As I was going through my sewing phase, I started to realize how much more I enjoyed the process of making the accessories for the outfit than the outfit itself. Because of this I decided to prefect my skills with years in metalsmithing and jewelry classes and hope to share my knowledge with you.
