Default Crimping Basics and Special Techniques

Hi. I've completed my first two CraftArtEdu tutorials. It was supposed to be one tutorial on crimping, but it got rather long and involved so they broke it up into two sections.

Part 1 handles the basics and Part 2 covers some special circumstances that arise when crimping jewelry.

BTW, if you want to be entered into the drawing to win one of the two bracelets I made in the e-class...



... just leave a comment in this thread. The winners will be randomly selected before Christmas.

I hope you enjoy these free classes!

They're listed at the bottom of my page. Here's the link:http://craftartedu.com/instructors/index/view/id/149/

Thanks!

Thanks for the tutorial. Off to check it out. I am in love with that second bracelet. Are those lampwork beads or stone? They are gorgeous.

Thanks. I hope you enjoy the tutorials.

The first bracelet is Peridot, Lapis, and sterling silver.

The second one is Jasper and sterling silver.

Isn't it wild the patterns Jasper makes?

The jasper is beautiful! I'm attempting to enjoy your tutorials but my internet is not cooperating at all. May be the weather. I'm now posting from my phone. The part that I saw was fantastic though. Really well done. Looking forward to watching part two if I can coax my internet into compliance.

This sounds like a great tut! I have a couple of specific issues that always seem to arise, so maybe this will help!

The bracelets are gorgeous too!!

Aw, thanks so much! There's not rush... The tutorials aren't going anywhere and they'll always be free.

Thanks Becky. Let me know if your issues aren't addressed in the class. Maybe it's something I omitted and should add in.

I've watched both tutorials and they are wonderful! I would love to be able to take an "in person" class with you. The bracelets are stunning.

Congratulations on being an instructor on CraftArtEd. I have been taking their classes for a while now. Am slipping over now to look at yours.

BTW, your bracelets are really beautiful.

Laura,
Thank you for your generosity! Very nice job!
I just watched the first one, and can't wait to see the second one. I have to say its one of the best jewelry making videos i've seen.
