We've turned the 8 week corner and are quickly approaching the end of the road. It is amazing what we have learned. It's amazing to see the progress of everyone in the class. It is magical.
There was a time in my life when I never thought I could pavé set, bead set, hand build a basket setting...Well, I can. I truly appreciate the teaching method that Blaine uses at New Approach School for Jewelers. I never found a book, video or school out there that can teach like Blaine is able to do in this program. You will learn, improve, refine, advance, push, excel in an extremely short amount of time. It's been an amazing experience and I am anxious to put my skills to work.
With a little free time in the clasp/hinge instruction, I finally finished my bead set-hand fabricated basket head earring side project. I had fun doing these and hope to have them for sale in my Etsy shop for the holidays!
