Beaducation & Craftsy -- better together. GIVEAWAY!




~~ THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED ~~
~~~ Winner announced here! ~~~


Hey everybody, Lisa here. Have you heard the news? In addition to running the show here at Beaducation, I am also teaching an online class at Craftsy on one of my favorite topics: Make Your Own Wirework Findings. Click the link or image to watch a class preview.

To celebrate, we are hosting a giveaway!!


THREE LUCKY WINNERS will receive:
Although I use a variety of tools and wire in this class, I chose these few tools and wire to giveaway 'cause they are a few of my favorites :)

My class features six lessons that will teach you everything from wirework fundamentals like basic loops and spirals to creating your own jump rings and coils. When you're ready to advance, I'll walk you through each technique for making head pins, ear wires, clasps and toggles. The final lesson teaches you different oxidation techniques to highlight the details of your findings and polish your components. With a run time of four hours, you will learn so much and bring even more personalization to your jewelry. 

Just like the online classes at Beaducation.com, Craftsy classes never expire so you can watch each lesson as many times as you need to until you perfect your technique. Watch whenever you want! 

To enter this giveaway, do one or more of the following things. Each is worth one entry:
  1. Leave a comment here on this blog post, letting us know your favorite finding. 
  2. Head over to my personal blog to see pictures of my days shooting at Craftsy and leave a comment there.
  3. Follow me on Twitter! I'm new to the Twittersphere and don't have many followers yet. 
Our winner will be chosen on Monday February 18 at 10 AM PST. Be sure to tell your friends! 

GOOD LUCK!

I love the beaducation classes. Making findings is something I need to explore more than I have. The class sounds like a great idea.

I would love to win a class on making findings. The beaducation classes are always terrific, so I presume this one would be also.

Barbara Mason said...

I love making my own balled headpins and clasps.

christinaB said...

Oh man, where would I begin? Love all different kind's of findings but the one I would love to learn the most is the S clasp or even a fish hook clasp with maybe some design.

Lisa hope to see you at Strawberry this year.

Lisa makes the best how to videos! She does it with such ease, when you watch her do the work she makes it look so simple.
Can't wait to view this new tutorial.

Laura Mae said...

Just in time I have become really fascinated with wire working! Your site inspires me. Thank you for all the great fun.

Judi Delgado said...

My favorite findings are those that look old. But, the thing I need most to learn and practice is making my own clasps.

Phyllis said...

I like fancy toggles and would love to learn how to make them.

Deborah Anton said...

I would love to learn more wirework! Do I have to name only one finding? ;) I love them all! Thanks for the chance!

Connie Sallee said...

I am new to this art of wirework. I have slowly been buying my tools...and experimenting. I have 10 grand-children, so I always have someone to give my practice pieces too. I have your metal stamping book and love the ideals it gives me. I would love to win this. Thank you for all your inspiration!!

Would've been fun to be the 'mouse in the corner' during filming!! Sounded like fun! Class sounds like it's right down my alley-looking forward to it!

Clasps and earwires are my favourites. They can really make a piece look different and fabulous.
Thanks

cindy said...

My favorite findings are ear wires, they are fairly simple to make but have so many variations.

Susan Morgan summorgan@earthlink.net said...

I'm always buying Earwires! So much verity in the shapes and a pair of earrings make a quick gift or wardrobe pick-me-up. It would be good to know how to consistently make pairs.

I've had the pleasure of taking classes with Lisa (years ago at NanC Meinhardt's) and would love to try an online class.

gypsygirl said...

I really enjoy working with wire!

Janine Narula said...

I started my own hand-stamped jewelry business several months ago, and this class would be so awesome for my business!
