Intermediate Series Package
This Intermediate Series is perfect for the wire jewelry maker who desires to progress from following patterns and trying to vary them, to actually being able to create their own designs.
Dale picks up from the conclusion of her Beginner's Series, and takes her students even further into the wire artist's world with solid training on how to plan, formulate and then execute more detailed projects.
Each DVD covers certain techniques that blend with other skills taught in the series. All DVDs include written follow-up directions and some also have extra-detailed diagrams that offer even more assistance as you learn.
Teaching just like she does in her studio, Dale offers more of her' Cougarisms' throughout her classes, and shares new design ideas as they occur to her while teaching 'on camera'.
From learning about new forming tools, showing how to incorporate beads all around and 'on' a bangle bracelet, a different way to construct the All Wire Rosette ring, creating a spring pin back and beginning to use a chasing hammer and a steel bench block, you will not be disappointed with the NINE unique projects in this set.

Bonus DVD #1 - Buzzy Bee Pin & Filigree Pearl Ring
'Since its birth, my Buzzy Bee pin has been a very popular gift item. It can be made using birthstone colors in either gemstones or crystals, and is a great way for me to teach the creation of a 'spring' pin. And the Filigree Pearl ring is a wonderful variation of a base ring design you are probably familiar with, besides being a gorgeous match for the Filigree Cuff bracelet!'
