Take a Group or Semi-Private Class With Susan


Imagine that you are sitting in a comfortable classroom setting and are given several straight wires and some jewelry tools.

You are then given step by step written and photographed instructions on how to twist, weave, bend and manipulate the straight wires into shapes and weaves.

You are given assistance and instruction by a seasoned wire wrapping instructor every step of the way.

When you are done, you have a completed piece of jewelry that you can wear home.

At Wired Lotus, that is what we do for you; we teach you to make one of kind jewelry works of art from straight bits of wire.

Why Take One Of My Jewelry Design Classes?

Why learn a new skill in jewelry design? Because it is a life experience that you can take with you your entire life.

For many people, it is cathartic, allowing for creative moments of euphoria and happiness.

Learning to create gives a sense of purpose and accomplishment.

Learning to create your own jewelry pieces allows you to tweak your jewelry to fit your wardrobe and clothing.

Don’t like that earring with the green gemstone?

Change it out with the red gemstone in a matter of minutes after learning the technique to doing so.

That earring that aunt Hilda gave you broke? Fix it yourself by using the right jewelry tools.

What Should You Expect in One of My Classes?

At Wired Lotus Jewelry School, we teach step by step instruction on how to create specific styles of jewelry and provide back-up step by step written and photographed instructions for each learner.

We discuss tools and the properties of metals, so that each learner can fully understand how to work with metals.

There is a science to this and we de-mystify that science in an enjoyable classroom setting.

What Is a Typical Class Plan?

What do we teach?

  • We teach wire weaving and metal forging from the most basic forms of metals.
  • The learner is given wires and sheet metals.
  • When they leave the classroom, they have a finished piece of jewelry.
  • Essentially, they are creating something from scratch.

If I put this in terms of baking a cake, this type of jewelry creating would be a lofty cake from scratch with the purest of ingredients and a superior hand crafted finished appearance.
