What you'll do

We will all gather at my house, I will provide all the supplies. I will teach you a few skills like how to cut wire properly, how to make an end loop in wire using needle nose pliers, how to choose kinds of beads for making earrings, how to use chain pliers for “crimping”, how to connect findings, head pins, and other pieces together to close a loop hole.

We will
Make three sets of earrings. These are: a single bead earring set, a multi bead earring set, and a dangle earring set.
I will motivate you by showing you all the past jewelery earrings and fashion jewelery I have made in the past. I will also provide a few hand outs on necessary skills for how to navigate the tools and supplies. You will choose the beads, colors, wires, etc that you want to work with.
I am your resource, as well as some YouTube videos, the books I have about making jewelry, and examples of what you can make. You will make three pairs of earrings—Perhaps one for yourself, and a few as gifts for your friends. With the given tools, you will work with your creative brains, enjoy the conversations of other cool ladies, and take home three sets of earrings!
Other things to note
This is fun! You’ll take home at least two or three pairs of earrings! We have fun, talk, connect, I’ll show you some cool art, and it will be very fun! I’ve done this mostly with groups of women! I have all the supplies! My house is kind of like a dc art galler. that’s the art gallery style

This was a great experience. My girlfriend and I enjoyed ourselves. The host provided snacks and we are vegan, so there were options for that. Everyone was friendly and welcoming, and I enjoyed making earrings.

Her class was so unique. I never thought I would be able to make earrings myself. The moment I stepped into shaddy house felt very welcome. Enjoyed the snacks and the coffee . Shaddy's way to teach was very explanatory which honestly made it very easy for me to understand all the tools and techniques. I felt I could expand my creativity during the class.At the end of the class, i felt i could do earrings myself. Thanks shaddy for sharing your knowledge and for being so nice. Would definitely recommend this class to anyone.!

I had an excellent time, I made wonderful earrings, I was happy with my finished product —- when I didn’t know it was possible for me to even make earrings. All the materials that we could choose from were kind of overwhelming at the beginning but by the end of our time at Shaady’s house, I felt comfortable picking out different beads and making my own designs. I liked the fact that I was able to make a beautiful bracelet and really pretty earrings to match. Some people were very advanced at jewelery making and they made dangle earrings with many different stands and levels. It was fun for all of us, and the wine was fantastic!

I enjoyed my experience, getting to connect with my artistic creative side. Bending wire to make my name in cursive was rather fun. I made two pieces of jewelry for my loved ones. I’m looking forward to Shaady showing me how to work with leather in the future. Her house was very interesting and artistic. The pizza she made from scratch was a nice surprise.

I wanted to do something out of my comfort zone and tried this -- my goal was to make something for my mom for Christmas. Shaady was absolutely wonderful. I didn't feel awkward, I didn't feel weird for being out of place, and I made something beautiful. Can't wait to see my mom's happy tears when she sees what I made.

Shaady is friendly, easy-going, fun to talk to and very caring. I took my son who has autism with me and she was very nice and accommodating. And I love my earrings!
