Watch 500+ Jewelry and Other Craft Videos Free This Weekend on Craft Daily
Do you enjoy making other crafts and art, besides jewelry? I've been doing all kinds of crafts since I was a little girl, and professionally since the mid 1990s. In addition to making jewelry (using metalsmithing techniques, enameling, mixed-media, resin, and more), I'm a long-time "crossover crafter" who dabbles in paper crafts and mixed media (I love scrapbooking and making cards, especially), knitting, sewing, and some others.
My grandmothers taught me to sew and quilt, one of them taught me to crochet, and much later, I learned to knit from the Queen of Crafts herself, Carol Duvall, on the set of her beloved craft show. We didn't have the internet when I learned to do most of my crafts. There was no YouTube, no Pinterest (gasp!), no Jewelry Making Daily or any of our sister Daily sites.
We've come a long way! And now all of our Daily sites have come together to create the ultimate crafty video learning site, Craft Daily, and you can watch it free December 4-7 using coupon code CDFTDEC. In your free preview, you'll see that Craft Daily is packed full of informative how-tos and video workshops by experts in all kinds of crafty fields. Whether you want to master your current craft passions or learn new ones, Craft Daily is a fun new destination for creatives. After the free preview is over, you can watch videos all month (or all year!) for one subscription price. There are over 500 videos and tutorials there already, and more are being added every week!
Just take a look and see all the ways you can incorporate other creative techniques into your jewelry designs: knit with wire, crochet with beads, sew leather or quilt fabric designs for pendants or bracelets, apply weaving techniques to wire and metal, spin your own necklace cords, or apply all kinds of fun mixed-media art ideas to create mixed-media jewelry! There's definitely something for everyone on CraftDaily.com!. But if you're really into one of the categories on Craft Daily and not at all interested in the others, you can get a "niche" subscription just for that category, too (such as Jewelry and Beading only). With your Jewelry subscription, you can watch video workshops from popular and accomplished jewelry artists and teachers, including Susan Lenart Kazmer, Lexi Erickson, Michael David Sturlin, Kim St. Jean, Tracy Stanley, Jeff Fulkerson, Michael Boyd, Janice Berkebile, Katie Hacker, Erin Prais-Hintz, and more! Take advantage of this risk-free trial and see all the fun that awaits you at Craft Daily! If you aren't thrilled with all the informative and inspiring videos, just cancel your subscription before the end of the trial and you won't be charged. It's risk free!
Want more details? Here are some of the great things about Craft Daily:
- You can watch 500+ craft tutorial videos in a variety of formats–on your computer of course, but you can also watch on iOS devices (iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch) as well as many Android-powered devices (including Kindle Fire, etc.). You can even stream the videos to your television via an iPhone, iPad, or by using AirPlay with an AppleTV.
- Video Bookmarks allow you to save your place and easily snap back to it if you get interrupted or need to review an important demonstration again.
- Adaptive Bitrate Streaming–which is a fancy way of saying Craft Daily offers the most interruption-free watching experience possible. *
- Ratings & Reviews allow you to see what videos other users love the most–and you can add your own two cents as well, to rate the videos you watch.
- You can add videos to your Favorites list to get to them easily (kind of like a Netflix queue–very handy!).
- We're pleased to be one of the first sites of our kind to offer Closed Captioning on a streaming site.
* Here's the nitty gritty on Adaptive Bitrate Streaming: If you're watching on a "slower" Internet connection, the Craft Daily platform "knows" and will stream the best version of the video file for your available bandwidth, just like sites such as YouTube and Netflix. So rather than you being stuck in an infinite "buffering" loop when your bandwidth isn't operating at prime capacity, the system will adapt your stream to temporarily feed you a lower-resolution version of the video more quickly, so you can keep watching without all those annoying stops and starts.
