I have taken 2 or 3 classes at BMAG. The PMC class I took was great. The teacher was very knowledgeable and shared alot of information. I left with a great pair of earrings that I am very proud of. I ...then took an etching class, which was terrible. I left with nothing to show for the money and time that I spent. The teacher showed me a technique that we tried several times and it just didn't work. It was a total waste of my time. I would never take another class from that teacher. I will not name names.

I have worked some in metal before, but I learned so much more in just one class. The instructor was great, and I have met so many interesting folks through it and being a Member of BMAG.

Sophilia Art to Steampunk artists

Thank you for accepting me in this group! I am an artist and jewelry maker, and sometimes I include steampunk elements in my creations, like the pendant below. ...I hope to find more inspiration for this style in your posts, and if you have suggestions, you are welcome to share them with me. Thank you!

Those of you who added yourself to the waitlist for it - if you did not see the email telling you it was again available you need to check your Spam folder! 💥 The notice email went out to a LOT of people for this course on the 9th.

This will be a two day class covering basic bezel setting of cabochon and faceted stones.

The class will manufacture a bezel to fit a cabochon stone provided by the student. The next step will be for the student to set the cabochon in the bezel.

The class will also cover setting a faceted stone provided by the teacher. Two afternoon sessions from 1pm to 4pm, over two days, will provide the student with a firm foundation on the basics of quality stone setting as a hobbyist or... professional.
