Jumping into metalworking from the beading world can sometimes seem a little daunting with the techniques and tools required. It's hard to know where to begin from workspace requirements to choosing the right tools needed for your first project. More often than not the space to create is the first limitation and that's where a mental roadblock can pop up.

In this webinar, Candie Cooper will lead you through setting up a simple metalworking workspace on your (you guessed it!) kitchen counter that you can whisk away by dinnertime. She'll also let you know what tools are key so you won't break the bank upgrading your tools. Lastly, she will teach you snappy techniques and mini projects that you can incorporate into your beaded designs.

Candie Cooper is known for her laid back teaching style. She has been making jewelry since 6th grade and first approached metalwork from a beader's perspective. If you're a beader looking to add new dimension to your pieces, this class is designed for you.

In this web seminar you will learn:

  • How to set up a metalworking station that is low tech.
  • What tools to purchase for metal designs.
  • Tips for successfully tackling metalsmithing techniques including cutting and sawing metal; texturing and forming sheet metal; and adding holes in metal.
  • How to correctly add a colorful patina to metal pieces.
  • Ideas for incorporating your new metalwork pieces into your beadwork stylishly.
  • And so much more!
