Using Cord Class

Devon Kai Collections ~ Original Designer Jewelry

PART 1: SKILLS (1 - 1˝ Hours)

  • Choosing when to use cord as opposed to wire
  • Different types of cord
  • Knotting: how to knot, when to knot, knotting tips.
  • Using crimp beads & crimp pliers
  • Adding pendants
  • Finishing the ends: bead caps, crimp beads & adding clasps
  • In Part 1 I will teach you the basic skills needed to make your necklace.  You may then take as much time as you feel you need practicing these skills before starting your piece.  If you don't have time to finish before the end of the class, you may either finish it on your own or you can bring it to a  Follow Up Class.

    PART 2: MAKING YOUR NECKLACE: (1˝ - 2 Hours)
    Once you've learned the basic skills, I will get you started on making your necklace.  Feel free to ask any questions as I will be there for guidance and help with whatever you need.  If you're not yet comfortable to begin making your piece, feel free to take more time and practice.  You can always take your piece home to work on or bring it back to a Follow Up Class.

    Choose the necklace design you'd like to make. You don't have to make the exact necklace pictured.  You are welcome to use different stones and pendants if you like. I will be bringing a selection of pendants, but if you are wanting to use different stones, I will need to know prior to the class which ones you would like to use.
