Defindings: Detailing Your Designs
Cost: $140 Kit fee: ZERO!
Time: Saturday Sept 24 9am-4pm

Working with wire is hotter than ever and in this full-day class with author Kerry Bogert, you'll learn the fundamentals to adding fantastic wire details to your jewelry designs. Head pins, ear wires, jump rings, and clasps are just a few of the pieces you could be making with your own two hands to give your necklaces, bracelets, and earrings unique touches. Throughout the day, you'll experiment creating and forging several styles of these components- Kerry will show you how. Be sure to bring a collection of your favorite beads and we'll design some creative pieces with your new skills.

Cost: $65 Kit Fee: ZERO! (and OMG, for that price *I* want to take my class!)
Time: Saturday Sept 24 6-9pm

In this fast paced digital age and highly competitive market, beautiful photos are a must if you are looking to sell your jewelry. If you have been struggling with your digital camera, and just can't seem to achieve the images you are hoping for, then this is the class for you. Jewelry designing, bead making, book writing, photo-taking blogger, Kerry Bogert will share her knowledge of jewelry photography in a way that is fun and informative. She'll share with you how to set up an inexpensive photo booth in your home studio, give tips and tricks on taking unique shots that grab attention, talk about props and product styling, walk you through the various settings on your camera for getting the types of images you are looking for, and the class will finish with instruction on photo editing in both free and professional grade programs. It is time to stop taking photos on your kitchen counter! This is truly a must-take class for jewelers looking to take their digital presence to the next level.

I really can't tell you how excited I am to be teaching at ArtBliss again this year. It truly is an out of this world event and I hope you'll join us!!

I'm really thinking seriously about going this year. I just emailed the contact for hotel info. I've never been to that area and the classes sound amazing. I'm thinking this year may be the year!

Kerry, your infomercial was FANTASTIC!! :-)
You are a natural. Your classes are going to be so much fun and full of great information. I know you've taught ME so much through the years with photography....I remember back in 2007 I believe, when you showed me how to do the all-white background technique on PSE! Your students will love glad you are returning this year!

SO wish that I could be there. Just to soak you up would be priceless! Enjoy the day!
P.S. If you are on the fence, get off it! ArtBliss is AMAZING!

Wow, both of those classes look fantastic- maybe I can rearrange me travel schedule and get there in person instead of just drooling on my keyboard.
