In this class, instructor Robyn Chachula shares her love and passion for crochet by taking you into the world of creative crochet jewelry. She has gathered together her favorite crochet and jewelry-making techniques to share with you to create five gorgeous jewelry pieces while learning many valuable skills you'll apply to all your crocheting.
The beautiful class projects -- Pansy Cuffs, Flower Motif Necklace, Snowflake Earrings, Pineapple Pendant Necklace and Golden Petals Ring--are presented both as written instructions and in symbol patterns. With clear explanation and large, on-screen examples, Robyn takes the mystery and fear out of reading symbol diagrams. She'll also explain how to crochet jewelry with classic materials such as thread and beads, plus how to work with unusual materials such as wire, leather and hemp.
Later in the class, Robyn will demonstrate simple jewelry-making skills to construct the projects, such as how to join motifs with jump rings and how to shape a wire motif into a beautiful ring. Finally, you'll explore creative ideas for using motifs far beyond jewelry and into home decor and art pieces.
