I am a beadweaver so wire wrapping was new to me. Jessica explains in detail very simple ways of making perfect loops and wraps. I was so pleased to be making perfect loops and wraps. It is now a breeze for me to make earrings, bracelets and even necklaces using the techniques I learned in this course. Thank you, Jessica, I look forward to taking more courses of yours.

Beginners wire wrapping mini-course

by Betty Mullins
I give this course 5 stars. I will follow up on lessons as needed. I was very impressed with the visual aids, seeing how easy to follow directions.I give this a thumb up.


by Lois Shaneour
Very easy to understand. Enjoyed the course. 5 stars.

Excellent Course

by Paul Sammons
I'm just getting started in wire jewelry. This course is exactly what I needed. Jessica does an outstanding job teaching and explaining things in detail. She makes it easy to follow and understand. She has a very nice way of presenting the material. The quality of camera work is superb. Nice, clear closeups with clear audio. You'll know what you need to get for supplies and tools too. It's all in here. I highly recommend this valuable course to anyone interested in learning to make wire jewelry the right way. Great job Jessica!

Extremely informative

by Regina Warren
I really did enjoy this course. It taught me a lot about wiring wrapping, how to make ear wire and headpins. I feel more comfortable now about making jewelry thank you so much. Regina

Love it so far and not finished yet!

by Terry Melcher
Jessica explains in such detail and so clearly every step to making a beautiful piece of jewelry! I have looked at many videos showing how to make wrapped loops and they never looked quite right. Jessica shows a different way to do it and they turn out great! Practice will make perfect!

Best Online Tutorial

by Joyce Martin
This was by far the very best online tutorial I have experienced. Jessica Barst is thorough in introducing beginners to the basics of beading. Life just got in my way of completing the course in a timely manner, but the weekly reminders, with completion status, were very helpful in encouraging me to keep moving thru the course. I found Jessica's presentation both calming and patient, never rushing the student to hurry thru to get to the next segment. The videos were easy to use to visualize what was needed to achieve the results as described. Added to the fine presentations, Jessica encourages students to post questions and share photos of their projects. I was so very impressed, that I will most certainly enroll in some of Jessica's other online courses. The only thing I would like added to the tutorial is the availability of a publication that includes the entire introductory course ('Im old school and benefit from referring to visuals and written instructions in books that can be opened next to me as I create).

Excellent tutorial!!!!

by Beverly Robinson
I really enjoyed this tutorial for beginners. It took me a while to complete the course but I finally completed the course and look forward to make some pieces. I hope in the future that there will be a advanced wire wrapping class.

Fantastic Beginner Wire Wrapping Course

by Carman Broderick
Loved this course. Jessica is a very good teacher and her projects are beautiful and easy to make. You will really enjoy learning how to start making wire wrapped jewelry. I highly recommend this course.

This is a GREAT course!

by Katherine Schoen
I began this course knowing nothing about wire wrapping, what kind of materials, what tools to have. What I thought looked so challenging to create Jessica, the instructor, broke down into simple steps. Jessica explained tools needed, the difference between materials to use and made recommendations as well. I would highly recommend this course. Thank you for providing it.

Great Course!

by Deby Henry
Your ability to teach with clear decisive instruction is awesome. Everything is explained with close up video to show exactly what needs to be learned to achieve great results!! Thanks so much for a great course!

Jewellery Made Easy

by Debra Kelday
I really enjoyed this course. Jessica has created clear step by step videos which make learning so easy. Showing us all the tools and equipment needed and talking us through each step, finally ending up with a piece of jewellery to be proud of. I would highly recommend this course for anyone who is beginning jewellery making.

Best teacher I have ever watched

by Diana Stephens
She is a great teacher. Her calmness and her voice was soothing as I listened , not forceful or loud. This made it easy listening and easy to comprehend. Her hands were so precise. Each move was deliberate and no extra movement at all. That made each new technique understandable. I sure wish I had seen this before making and giving away earrings that did not hang right and would come undone , losing the dangle from the ear wire. It was crude work compared to what I can do now but each friend loved them anyway, so I won't beat myself up over it. I'm ready now to really make quality jewelry that could be sold if I wanted to. Suzi Stephens

by Patricia Dymond
Loved it

Great course

by Julia Mummery
I really enjoyed the wire wrapping for beginners course, I learnt so much. Was surprised at how many different ways to make earrings, necklaces and bracelets. Thank you. x

The Most Helpful Information

by Angie Kelley
I have been teaching myself to make jewelry for the past year. I have watched YouTube videos, taken business webinars, and every class I can possibly find. This is the most educational class that I’ve taken. I’m so much more confident in my abilities now that I know how to wire wrap. Thank you, Jessica!

Beginning Wire Wrapping

by Jessica Broghan
This class was wonderful and well worth the money. I've struggled with creating links, eye pins and just generally had trouble making my jewelry projects look professional. The instruction was clear and concise and the videos allowed me to stop them to see how a tools are being held, how the wire moves around the tools and how finished products are supposed to look. Thank you so much for offering these courses. I will definitely use this instruction to make beautiful jewelry.

EXceptional Teacher and Course

by Mary Jo Lochan
Jess is an amazing tutor and exceptionally gifted instructor. With printable texts on tips, cheat sheets and calm easy voice there is nothing to fear learning wire wrapping! Very Grateful Student! Thank you Jess :)

Most excellent tutorial!

by Laura Jones
This tutorial got me off and running -- very clear, step by step instructions with good narrative and excellent photography. Super job! I learned enough to get me started in and the techniques just jive with how I like to roll in jewelry making and design. I've taken off from here thanks to this terrific foundational course.

Wire Wrapping for Beginners Review

by Liz Elliott
I loved this class. It was just what I had been looking for. The instruction is clear and well-paced. I do need to practice a lot more before I can be as adept as Jess (if ever) but the class gave me lots of ideas and inspired me to try some new designs. Thank you!

Excellent course!

by Ellen Cervone
I was taught jewelry wrapping by a spouse of a soldier who had been stationed in Cuba. They found a lot of sea glass there and taught each other how to wrap the glass. The wife then taught me in her home and I loved it right then. It sparked my interest, but I needed a lot of repetition, practice and close up looks, yet I didn't want to be annoying. This video is the perfect answer to that! I was able to rewind as many times as I needed. Jessica is so clear and explains so well. I am so happy with the knowledge that I received from her and this course. Thank you! Ellen

Perfect title for course

Text and video very easy to follow. I am not a beginner but I find instructions still very helpful and video is easy to understand.

Great tutorials, will be back for more.


by Sheryl Northover
Excellent course, very easy to follow. I have enjoyed every part of this course and can't wait to get started, I have just about collected all the equipment I will need to start with, and will post on facebook as soon as I have completed my first piece. Many thanks for this opportunity to have learnt something that I have wanted to do for so long. Thank you Sheryl

by Vesselina Atanassova
Hi, Thank you Jessica for such detailed information, I am very glad to have got teacher as you, you are the best teacher ever. I have nothing to add. I want to practice what I had learned before posted and share with others. Warm regards, Vesselina

Great Course!

by Kay Whitt
I thoroughly enjoyed this course! I learned a lot from Jessica. I found her videos and explanation to be very clear and easy to follow. I like that each segment is short enough to watch quickly and then I could go and practice the technique before continuing. The format is easy to go back and find techniques as well, since I did go back and review some lessons a few times as a refresher. I would definitely take another course from Jessica and recommend her academy to others. I am so glad I found her!

The best tutorial for beginners!

by Julia Vayner
Finally I found tutorial that very useful for me us a beginner and instructor is wonderful!

Great tutorial!

by Kim Sager
Every step and technique are presented in a very clear and concise manner. It's apparent she has loads of experience and she does a fantastic job demonstrating each step. I look forward to watching more tutorials on other projects.

A fabulous lesson collection!

by Denise OBrien
I can't thank you enough for these lessons! I may do some head scratching at first - but after making several basic ear wires or loops etc. for a few days and then reviewing the applicable lessons - wow!! I am amazed at how often I have "aha" moments, and my creations the NEXT time around are all so much better. Your tips and tricks are also a special treat - many thanks for those, too!

Wire Wrapping for Beginners...

by Katie Wile
I loved taking this class and I'm looking forward to others. Jess is a great instructor and she explains things so that they make sense. Can't wait for more classes.

Very Detailed videos

by Lisa Griffith
I can't not tell you how much I have learned through this class. I had to take longer to do it, but well worth it. Jessica takes her time and always asks questions. I love the the items that the other class members have done and showing them was nice. I am very thankful to Jessica for the chance to take this class.


by mags hay
Hi, I have been making jewelry for a few years now. I am self taught. I now know where I was going wrong on basic techniques. This course has been so informative and easy to go through with great videos. Thank you Mags

course review

by Manohari Antony
This course though called basic gave a taste of all the necessary techniques one need to make wire wrapped jewelry to any novice. I am very pleased with the content, the way the course is structured and the detailed easy explanations along with the videos. I am very grateful to Jessica for sharing her knowledge with people who need that confidence to tip their toes in the world of wire wrapped jewelry. I enjoyed this course immensely and will recommend to anyone who wants to learn the techniques and start doing their own jewelry whether young or old. Thanks a lot Jessica

Really enjoyed the course!

by Doreen Cooper
Thanks Jess, I found the course to be very well laid out and thorough and really enjoyed your teaching style. The close-up photography was great, and you made everything very understandable. I need to practice lots before I take your next course, but I like the look of it.

Perfect for beginners!

by nellie azogue
Thanks, Jess, for this tutorial for beginners! I've been watching a lot of DIY projects on Pinterest and Youtubes and I think I was doing it the wrong way. Now after this tutorial, I'll be making my pieces with more confidence and unleash my hidden talent (in case I have one). I will be inspired by the works of your students and hope to learn more from them.

Not only for Beginners

by Gloria Borrero
I am so happy I didn't let the title stop me from joining in and watch all of these wonder videos. Wire Working is wonderful and very accomplishing. It's been at least 5 years since I started working with wire, the previous yr I spent make wired ropes, which were quite fun and easy to follow. Wire Wrapping was my first step to my ultimate goal of 'hobby metalsmithing', which is where I am now, however, your videos taught me how to perfect my wire wrapping skills, things I used to do the hard way! Note to others: this course is not only for beginners but a great group of videos, even if you've been wrapping for a while!! We can also learn something new by watching some else's techniques. Thanks so much!!

I loved it

by ann spires
This was very interesting you taught me alot... I do have a question. I saved this on bookmaker so I can go back to it. I can keep this for later use can't i? I'm the only one trying this and I saw on Internet and it interested me. I just want to go back over if I do not do it right.

Awesome teacher!

by Jacie Davis
After trying so many times to figure out wire wrapping with YouTube tutorials I decided to give this class a try. I'm so glad I did! Jess is an awesome teacher who takes the time to go through all the important steps that nobody else ever did. I just bought the herringbone class too and can't wait to learn more!!

I'm making my own jewelry!

by Margaret Smith
As a total beginner, I was afraid that wire wrapping would be too hard, but this course makes it so easy! Some of the projects seemed pretty advanced but if you start at the beginning and go through the steps they will make sense when you get there. Jessica is a great teacher! I can't believe I can make my own jewelry. I'm so excited!

by Rosemary Pedder
I went through the whole course yesterday and found it clear concise and very easy to follow. Unfortunately I live in a country town and although I have ordered my supplies to make the projects, they still haven't arrived yet, but I love that I can go back through the material when my wire etc does arrive and work along with you, step by step. I make polymer clay beads and am really looking forward to being able to do something unique to show off these beads. Great course, Thank you.

This class is taught extremely well.

by Mara Meadows
I was a little rusty on some techniques, so was thrilled to take part in this course as a refresher. The tips are wonderful and the instructor doesn't skimp on any bit of information. Love the course platform as well.
