2 Day Classes

Form, Texture & Color
A walk through all my favourite techniques: Swiveling Elements, Thread Decor, Translucent Layers, Shadowboxes and many more. By the end of the class you will have a nice stash of different beads and elements that you can combine to your own unique piece of jewelry. Jewelry construction will also play a big part in this class.

Hinged Bracelet (Sgraffito Decor)

This class teaches the whole construction process for a bracelet where the hinge is entirely made from polymer clay and that is closed with inlayed magnets. It will give you a hint of how to work as exact and neatly as possible to achieve a perfectly shaped and finished piece of jewelry.

This is an advanced class and the students should be familiar with conditioning, color mixing and basic bracelet construction (e.g. simple bangles).

Hinged Bracelet (Textured and Colored Decor)

This class teaches the whole construction process for a bracelet where the hinge is entirely made from polymer clay and that is closed with inlayed magnets. It will give you a hint of how to work as exact and neatly as possible to achieve a perfectly shaped and finished piece of jewelry.

This is an advanced class and the students should be familiar with conditioning, color mixing and basic bracelet construction (e.g. simple bangles).

Flower Pod Jewelry Set

If you‘re working a lot with polymer clay you will find that over time the scrap clay will pile up high on your work table. This class actually makes use of your scraps. We will cover the muddy grey clay with bright and clean white clay and from that we‘ll form the pod shaped elements that are the base for all the pieces we create.


Full Day Classes

Swiveling Necklace

This full-day class is all about playing with shape, color, texture, pattern, dimension and movement. After we create various individual elements, all the pieces will be „riveted“ together to a playful, swiveling necklace.

Shadowbox Sliding Necklace

This class is all about playing with colors, texture and dimension.
You will learn how to build, shape and color the different parts of the pendant and then I will show you how to bring it all together. The necklace is finished with a sliding clasp that fits nicely into the design and which allows the wearer to adjust the length of the necklace to their liking. 

Shadowbox Pendant

A playful project that let’s teaches you a lot about the combination of hollow shapes, color and inventive construction principles. The very special feature of this project is the „invisible“ toggle clasp on the front. You can‘t actually see the clasp as it is part of the design.

Carved Beads Necklace

No need to hide your scrap clay as cores of beads or bracelets anymore. This class will show new ways to process your valuable scraps in a creative way. By using carving tools, several paints and waxes, combined with your very own creativity, the unattractive grey lump will transform into sophisticated and appealing pieces of jewelry.

Thread Tile Bracelet

These bracelets feature a very light and distinct thread-like pattern and a light texture in the black parts counterparted by the raised bullseye cane slices that also introduce a hint of color to the piece. The individual tiles are connected with buna cord which gives the bracelet some flexibility to easily  slide it over your hand.

Hinged Bracelet (Basic/simple Decor)

This class teaches the whole construction process for a bracelet where the hinge is entirely made from polymer clay and that is closed with inlayed magnets. It will give you a hint of how to work as exact and neatly as possible to achieve a perfectly shaped and finished piece of jewelry.

This is an advanced class and the students should be familiar with conditioning, color mixing, skinner blends and basic bracelet construction (e.g. simple bangles).


Half Day Classes

Swiveling Pins/Pendants

This half-day class is all about playing with shape, color, texture, pattern, dimension and movement. After we create various individual elements, all the pieces will be „riveted“ together to a playful, swiveling pin or pendant.

Shadowbox Pins/Pendants

This half-day class is all about playing with shape, color, texture, pattern and dimension. Various hollow, solid and see-trough elements interact on different levels to raise the piece into the third dimension.

These graphical bold but still playful pieces can be worn as a pin or a pendant.

Shield Earrings

These stud earrings feature a very light and distinct thread-like pattern and a light texture in the black parts counterparted by the raised colored stripes that also introduce a hint of color to the piece.

ArtDeco Earrings

Art Deco is a design style which first appeared in France in the 1920s and which was flourishing internationally in the 1930s and 40s and it affected many areas of design. The style is characterized by rich colors, bold geometric shapes and abundant ornamentation. This class gives you plenty of room for playing around with shapes, design and colors.

Tiny Steps Pin/Pendant

A very simple yet graphical strong little project which works well in any color scheme, especially if complementary colors are used. This class is especially suitable for not so advanced clayers.

Carved and Textured Pin

No need to hide your scrap clay as cores of beads or bracelets anymore. This class will show new ways to process your valuable scraps in a creative way. By using carving tools, several paints and waxes, combined with your very own creativity, the unattractive grey lump will transform into sophisticated and appealing pieces of jewelry.

Sorbet Necklace

This class uses the mica shift or ghost image technique. The very special feature of this project is the toggle clasp on the front. You can‘t actually see the clasp as it is part of the design.

Translucent Layers Technique

This class is all about translucency, depth and the third dimension. The use of white and translucent polymer for the decor layer allows you to actually look into the piece. We will create a few different decor sheets which you can use to create your very own pin or pendant.
