JEWELRY CLASS SCHEDULE {Knoxville Areas}

Most classes will be held in my private studio in the East Knoxville/Fountain City area. I'll provide you with the address after registration.

But I also hold classes in homes, apartment clubhouses, offices, galleries, coffee shoppes, and more! I'll even teach on the beach, lol.

Wouldn’t it be fun to have one in your office after hours!? or you can all come to me for a party!

Be sure to bring a friend! or two!

NOTE: Due to the increasing cost of precious metals, in most of the classes, I will provide faux wire in different colors. This keeps the classes more affordable. Most classes will also offer the option of upgrading to sterling silver, yellow, or rose gold filled wire if you'd prefer.
