I designed this course to be easily understood by absolute beginners. Every step of the process is demonstrated, as well as explained in detail.
Nothing is left out.
In fact, additional resources are included.
Here's Be(ad) Stunning! Jewelry Making Masterclass, in a nutshell:
What are the materials needed for crafting the necklace demonstrated in the course?
glass round seed beads size 11 (TOHO) in: red (15 grams), blue (15 grams) and white (45 grams);
glass faux pearls: white (210 pieces, size 4 mm);
transparent nylon thread (24 meters/24 yards long; 0,25 mm / 0.009" thread diameter thick);
1 stopper (crimp bead);
round nose pliers;
1 big safety pin;
cotton pillowcase (standard size: 23" x 47", or 60 x 120cm), or a cotton sheet
Who is this course not for?
this course is not for you if you have a diminished vision, or
if you are not willing/able to spend a lot of time sitting at a table doing repetitive activities
Why is this course valued at $200?
Well, ask yourself this... would you rather:
sign up for a waiting list to a workshop in a City Museum in Samobor, Croatia (I waited 18 months to get in)
pay for a returned trip to Croatia and back, and a 10-day stay (you'd have to eat as well, remember?)
hire someone to translate (or learn the language) so you can understand the instructions at a workshop
accommodate your schedule, because the workshop only takes place in April and October
Or, would you like to instead:
pay only $200 (or even less when Udemy offers the course at a discounted price)
have access to the course at any time, and keep it for a lifetime
listen to the course in English and have downloadable material in English too
have the option to watch, pause, rewind the same video as many times as you like
have me answer any questions you might have, right here, within the course itself?
You do the math.
Who this course is for:
- Statement jewelry fans
- Handmade jewelry crafters
- DYS enthusiasts
- Jewelry designers
- Fans of Croatia
My name is Vesna and I am Croatian.
Croatia is a beautiful European country with over millennia of history & culture & architecture, Slavic language, tasty traditional food, and stunning natural wonders.
Some would argue sports world champions and the most beautiful women in the world should be on the list too... so I'll just leave it here for you, as well.
Let's skip the intro, and get to the point
I've created 2 courses for you, here on Udemy, that are both about to make you famous! No joke.
Jewelry Making Masterclass: (Be) as Stunning... will teach you how to handcraft statement jewelry pieces fit for royalty (or at least that Instagram celebrity you secretly admire and follow) using pretty much nothing but fishing thread and glass beads (both super cheap and accessible, btw).
So... what's so special about it, you ask?
It will take YOU:
- tens of hours to finish a necklace
- laser-focused coordination to intertwine multiple threads
- patience and zen-like peace to align thousands of beads
(yes, that was "thousands" as in 4000)
- persistency & perseverance while you are learning and practicing a 100-year-old skill, not many even know about, much less can do
But, fear not.
I will guide you through the entire process thread-by-thread. Bead-by-bead.
EXACTLY as if you & I are sitting at the same table making incredible jewelry, sipping tea and munching on double chocolate chip cookies.
See? You ARE able to handle multiple objects at the same time ;)
And so... you will end up with a necklace so unique, so eye-catching, so glorious, EVERYONE you know will keep complimenting you on your skill, patience, creativity, genius, and style when they see your new made-by-you beaded piece of art.
(yes, it keeps happening over and over to my students, so I'm giving you a heads up of what's coming your way)
Beautiful Beaded Bracelets: Jewelry Making for Beginners ... will teach you how to make a cute bracelet to match your statement necklace
(or give you a chance to practice the skill of Kraluš crafting - Croatian traditional beaded jewelry - on a smaller project)
Either way, the jewelry you will make following these courses will get you the attention and compliments of others.
Plus, inner peace while you're making it, and
evergrowing joy & confidence with each jewelry piece you finish making.
It's almost as addictive as freshly baked chocolate chip cookies... you won't be able to stop yourself from making just 1 piece of jewelry :)
