Inspiration doesn't always come easy for artists. Sometimes premade "helpers" get our message across. We begin with our feature bead style - today is ceramics. Then artist, Eva Sherman starts out with a premade metal cuff to display mokume gane polymer. Artist, Candie Cooper is next with a paisley pendant aided by a die cut. Finally Tamara Honaman shows how to solder with premade bezel blanks.
Join host Katie Hacker along with her guests as they create today's heirlooms, with new twists on traditional jewelry making techniques. Each episode features just one artist for an in depth lesson on two heirloom techniques. You'll really get to know their insider tips and have extra time to see every detail. Katie finishes each show with a lesson sharing a few of her favorite traditional techniques.
