The Professional Pearl & Bead Stringing DVD teaches foundational skills and concepts necessary to produce professional-level jewelry.
The course is built around three necklaces and 20 chapters. In addition to step-by-step demonstrations, key concepts are discussed and explained including design vs manufacturing trade-offs, how to identify quality factors, what materials to use and when, and much more.
An insert lists the tools and materials you’ll need to begin manufacturing jewelry. Supplies are easily available at most jewelry supply companies. In addition, the DVD references several companies as potential sources for tools and materials. (We are not affiliated with those companies.)
Three necklaces are demonstrated moving from the easiest technique to the more advanced techniques and provide the basic building blocks enabling you to begin manufacturing jewelry professionally.

Working with Wire
Professional Pearl and Bead Stringers often want and/or need to expand their manufacturing capabilities. In addition, to your own desire to increase your skills, clients often want earrings or bracelets as companion pieces to a necklace and you’ll want to be able to meet that need.
Learning how to manipulate wire to make jewelry and manufacture findings vastly expands jewelry making skills. The DVD begins with an explanation of the key concepts necessary to work with wire including gauges and hardness, often a source of confusion to beginners. Demonstrations include how to make loops and earrings, manufacturing ear wires, clasps and jump rings. Hammering and sanding techniques are demonstrated. The DVD is stand alone. $12.99 plus $2.74 shipping.
