Thank you for taking my jewelry class! If you enjoyed your experience, please share this class with a friend and consider taking another one of my classes (Arduino, Braids, Knitting, Internet of Things). I'd like to receive your feedback to improve this and future classes, so feel free to drop me a line.

If you make and document a jewelry project of your own, please consider writing an Instructable about it, and enter it in one of our frequent contests.

Step 1: Next, Try...

If you completed all the lessons in this class, you are bursting with jewelry making potential! You're ready to try almost any type of jewelry project and even create your own designs. Take a look at this collection of great jewelry making tutorials from the Instructables community:

For the first project, I used Rose Quartz, Clear Quartz, and Dyed Quartz for the beading. For the cording, I used black monocord and leather strap, for a thick and chunky look.

Photos of my first two projects, I used pink and brown agate, loved the colours!

I really enjoyed all the classes, it's a great way to learn and the explanations were very easy to follow.

I used 20 beads plus a pinecone charm, and that was big on my small wrist, so I'll use less next time. I also used waxed cotton instead of leather because it was cheaper.

love the addition of the pinecone charm, great piece of work

I used some jump rings I had lying around (wish they were smaller) but I think it turned out pretty good with the scales :)

Thanks for the clear instruction.

I use 0.8cm round Aqua Turquoise stone beads and two big ceramic beads. I wear it in a group.

Hey ! I also tried the beads lesson, I used twisted wire instead of leather cord to make my bracelet. Your wire lesson gave me the idea to make some earrings ! Thanks a lot for the lessons and sorry for the mistakes ! (English is not my natural language :) )

bekathwia (author)Ju992017-01-07

Lookin' good! Thanks for sharing!

First go at the beads lesson. I don't use animal products so used plain cord and had embroidery thread and wooden beads on hand. Made the ends a bit too short but still wearable! Thanks for the lesson I enjoyed the process.

bekathwia (author)ChristinaH1152017-01-07

That came out great! Thanks for sharing with us, and I'm excited to see what else you make.
