To my students

Welcome! If you are at this site because you are signed up for a class with me, or you are considering it-- this is where I will post information that may be of use to you. You can also see some of my work in previous posts, below.

I will be ordering some of the tools my classes will need so that I can make them available to students at lower cost than you would pay ordering them individually, and conveniently bring them to you at class. For those trying my bent-and-hammered bracelet class ("Sinuous Silver Bracelet and Earrings" or "Flowing Silver-Wire Bracelet "), you can order the hammer and/or steel block through me, if you wish. This hammer (see picture) is my very favorite hammer. It has a good weight, the heads are well-polished, and it has no corners to ding up your metal. The price for these hammers is $30 plus local sales tax, and the steel block, 2 1/2" square, is $10.

You will need to order the tools ahead of time if you wish to be sure to get in on the group order. Contact me at

As for other classes, I will have extra materials such as sterling wire or titanium sheet available according to the subject of the class.

Those taking the knit wire bangle class: You may want to put some pearls or beads inside your bangle! If you think you might, bring them along to class-- any size up to about 8mm, any color, any type you think might be good.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at any time!

I'm hoping to take the Etruscan Chain & Ring class on July 21st. Just thought I'd say hi! Usually I make lampwork beads and chainmaille jewelry. This set has a beautiful modern and medieval look to it! I hope I have the wire working skills to make something wearable! ;-) Love your work and I'm looking forward to attending the Wire Jewelry Fest!
