Online Jewelry Making Courses

Updated on October 1, 2014

Unless you live in a large city, it can be almost impossible to find local jewelry making courses or classes. For me, I've found that taking online jewelry making courses and online classes works out much better and cheaper than attending an actual course.

Below is a list of some great online jewelry making courses, including some free jewelry making courses, that you can do at times you choose - using the money you've saved in travelling to buy materials to actually make your own jewelry.

At The Bench

At The Bench provide probably the very best, high quality, online jewelry making course that I've discovered. With nearly 400 videos, support forums giving direct assistance and a whole year's access to everything - it's a no-brainer when you evaluate cost, quality and value for money.

At The Bench is an on-line jewelry training web site for anyone interested in learning how to make jewellery, from a beginner right through to a professional level. You'll learn how to work with silver, become a silversmith, work with copper and other metals, as well as learning hundreds of tips and trips to give your jewelry a professional finish.

If you want to make your own high quality jewelry, or to start your own jewelry business, this course and it's ongoing help and support is invaluable; the value for money is unbelievable, giving you a whole year's subscription for less than the cost of a one day workshop! There are also monthly payment options for those without £99 available right now.

You choose what you learn from the hundreds of lessons, enabling you to skip what you already know or aren't interested in. Then, simply head for the forums to show off what you made, see what other people made, or simply swap new ideas, tips and shortcuts!

Category: Silversmithing, jewellery making

Cost: £99/year (approx US$150)

Jewelry Making Professor Free Beginners Course

The Jewelry Making Professor has a growing resource of completely free tutorials and a Free Beginners Course. This is great to give you ideas and instruction in making jewelry.

The free beginners course covers bead stringing as well as bead weaving, presented in video format so it's easy to follow and copy. With seven separate video tutorials, this is a high quality free online beading course.

Categories: Bead Waving, Bead Stringing.

Cost: FREE

To Sum Up...

You can get more of your money's worth by learning to make jewelry online and by joining in one of the best ways to learn to make your own jewelry.

You're not simply buying into one day of activity, plus associated costs, but for a long-term learning experience that mostly works out cheaper than a single day in a regular class. I feel you gain more experience and help in the longer-term, mixing with people you are building a relationship with, rather than attending a quick course with a stranger who might never see you again!

This leaves you with more money to spend on some great tools and some top advice on which ones you should get and where's best to get them from - that's something no class has time for!

Worth a look!
