Losing an earring is so frustrating! But why does it happen? In this 1 Min/1Tip video, I talk about what may cause your earrings to fall out, and what you can do about it.
There’s a new live workshop coming up January 22-24, 2018! “Writing Your Artist Bio” is for anyone applying to shows, setting up a website or social media, or who just wants to share their story in a short, engaging way. Find out more here.
Your Artist Bio is the first glimpse people get at you, and your best way of introducing yourself to them. People want to know who they are buying from. They want to know how you got started, what you’ve achieved and why they can trust you. Through this workshop you’ll learn how to:
Build Your Story
Make it Effective
Adapt it to Suit
During three live, online, interactive sessions, you’ll go through the process of writing your Artist Bio, with the help of an experience editor. Learn and work from the comfort of your living room! You’ll finish with 3 pieces of writing you can use in your promotional material, on your website, or to tell people about your creative journey so far.
WRITING YOUR ARTIST BIO
Hosted online by Dianne Karg Baron
Dates: January 22, 23, 24, 2018, from 7-9 pm ET
Cleaning your jewelry in the tumbler with stainless steel shot is very effective. The only problem is that the shot sometimes gets stuck, and becomes difficult to get out. Viking Knit chains are especially susceptible to stuck shot problems, so here’s a suggestion for repurposing a common dental tool!
Oh… and this is the reason why you want to make sure you get all of the shot out BEFORE you photograph your pieces:
Nice huh? I wish I’d noticed this before posting it on Etsy… LOL
Join the Members Studio, TToW’s live interactive video-based wire jewelry community, and learn how to connect your head, your heart and your hands to make beautiful wire jewelry!
Announcing the launch of my new interactive online community, The Tao of Wire Members Studio!
For years, I’ve wanted to be able to teach my live classes online, but until recently the technology didn’t match what I envisioned in my mind! Thankfully, it’s now caught up, and as of today, I’m happy to be able to offer classes that you can join from the comfort of your own living room!
The TToW Members Studio is an interactive online community, where you can join other passionate wire jewellers to share and learn!
I’ve spoken and written a lot about my life as a wire artist as being on a journey, one that links my head, my heart and my hands to create beautiful jewelry. My vision with The Tao of Wire has always been to help you on your creative journey. The TToW Members Studio helps me take that to a new level, by letting us talk face to face, in real time.
Have you ever struggled to make earrings in mirror images that match? Many wire artists have told me that they are able to do one side, but just can’t seem to get the other side look completely right. Well, this project is perfect for practising making mirror images – and it’s super easy!
The Reflected Love Earrings were inspired by Claude Monet’s Water Lilies paintings and were originally created for The Year of Jewelry Project in 2017. Earlier this year I did a Facebook Live broadcast demonstrating these earrings, and I’m happy to bring them back now in a new, more complete step-by-step video!
These earrings not only mirror each other from left to right, they match from top to bottom – and all you need to do is pay attention to one critical step!
Give this project a try today, and then share your results!
