Learn How to
Make Wire Jewelry

(and how to design it!)
in this creative, beginner-level wire jewelry class
with 26 videos and 27 printable handouts

 
Design and Make Artistic Jewelry Components Video Class by Rena KlingenbergWelcome! I’m Rena Klingenberg – wire jewelry artist and founder of Jewelry Making Journal.

This online video class is an easy, creative approach to learning how to make wire jewelry.

And you’ll learn more than just how to make wire jewelry.

You’ll also learn how to design it.

As you go through the hands-on wireworking lessons and projects, you’ll also learn how to develop your own ideas for unique wire jewelry components.

And by the end of this class, you’ll be designing and making your own artistic earwires, clasps, connectors, and pendant bails.

“Absolutely, this class a must for aspiring wire workers to kick their skills up by several notches and produce drool worthy jewellery!!

I am able to actually think of new designs to further my skills and am more confident of my abilities.

What I liked best were the clear videos and fantastic verbal instruction by Rena!”

– Ramya

 

Also Learn
How to Design Wire Jewelry

In this class you’ll learn how to get great jewelry design ideas, translate them into wire, and create your own unique clasps, earwires, links, bails, and more.

I’ll teach you the system I use in this design process, plus my shortcuts and tweaks for creating professional-quality wire jewelry components.

 

Rena’s way of teaching and showing how to do all the steps in her very pleasant relaxed voice made this class so enjoyable and I learned so much, not just about tools and techniques, but how I can use my own creativity to design and create things my way!

Thanks so much for this wonderful class!

I am very excited and eager to create a lot more of my own earrings, connectors, clasps, etc. instead of purchasing these already made. That way I can say that my handmade creations are truly 100% handmade!!”

– Angela Walker Robison

 

If You Think You’re Not Creative,
and That You Can Only Make Jewelry Designs
That Someone Teaches You…

. . . this system is perfect for you.

In this class I’m giving you a library of 35 wire shapes, and teaching you how to make them.

Then I’ll show you how to mix and match these shapes to create an infinite variety of jewelry components.

Then we’ll go beyond the Wire Shapes Library.

We’ll learn how to find (or dream up) other shapes, plus how to include them in your jewelry components.

This wire jewelry class will teach you how to design from your own creativity – even if you didn’t think that was possible for you.

 

“I now have a better understanding about designing, sketching and creating my own pieces which is fundamental to this form of art.

I particularly liked the methodology throughout the course.

It goes from very basic to more advanced ideas and shows how to develop your own artistic style while recording all the steps for future reference.”

– Barbara Ladini

 

You’ll Also Grow a Notebook
That’s Filled with
Valuable Reference Materials

In the “Design and Make Artistic Jewelry Components” class, I’ve included 27 printable handouts – cheat sheets, checklists, forms, and transcripts.

By the time you finish this class, you can have everything you’ve learned in a handy notebook that you can easily refer to.

And you don’t need to take notes in this class – just print the transcripts and enjoy watching the videos.

 

“Having worked with wire awhile, I wondered if the class might be too simple. I was SOO wrong. I learned something in each video.

My ideas for designs are much clearer and focused now.

What I liked best was learning to combine elements of the components to create new ones.

I highly recommend this class for any wireworker who wants to make the jump from following tutorials to designing their own jewelry.

I really enjoyed the class. The cheat sheets and video transcripts really make your classes stand out from the crowd.

Count me in for any future classes!”

– Teresa

“I am an absolute beginner at wire working so I hoped the class would not be too limited in helping me get started.

I would recommend this course because it is well structured and logical.

It has great advice for the beginner on how to establish and grasp the basic concepts of wire work that then allows for future development with a sound foundation to grow from.

“I recommend this class. The instructions are clear, concise and to the point.

The videos are good quality and the demonstrations of the techniques are clearly displayed.

The components being taught are very versatile and can be used in many designs.

This class is an excellent starting point for beginners and a good refresher for those of us who are mainly self taught.

I like the simplicity of Rena’s designs and her ability to go straight to the core of the components.”

– Jan McNichol

 

What This Wire Jewelry Class
Is Not:

  • It’s not a wire-wrapping class.
  • It’s not geared to intermediate to advanced wire artists (I have a class coming up for you soon, though!).

 

“I know I can do more designing and taking the elements I learned in the class and apply to my jewelry making. I also believe I can design new elements.

What I like best is the wire library.

I would recommend this class… you learn the basics and how to develop into creating your own jewelry.”

I have learned so much from this class and can’t wait to explore my creativity making more earrings, components, clasps, and pendant bails, in addition to other components that I am sure I can make using these lessons I learned from Rena in this class.

I have my notebook filled with all of the main reference sheets and cheat sheets and then I plan to print out the transcripts for each video to add to my notebook, as a handy reference for me.

Wonderful class, Rena!! Very well worth every penny!!”

“I knew it would be well worth the expense and it most definitely was!

My wire skills have become more fluid since I’ve watched and practiced your techniques.

You have a very efficient technique.

The video demos are terrific – so well done, but the best part of the class for me is your organization process.

I like how the class and materials were presented and used in an efficient and neat manner.

I find it hard to function without order and your class is helping me to manage all aspects of how I make my jewelry.

I absolutely would recommend this class.

It’s taken my confidence and skill to the next level and improved my jewelry making efficiency.

I appreciate how much thought and time went into all the details and every aspect.

I will take anything Rena teaches!”
