She is patient and never rushes through the lesson.

I have taken several wire wrapping classes from Elizabeth and thoroughly enjoy her teaching style and learning new techniques. Elizabeth will demonstrate several ways of accomplishing the same task and you can choose the method that is most comfortable to you. I learned how to wrap a cabachon free form as well as how to incorporate the addition of beads, make a bail and curly loops at the end of the piece. I certainly recommend Elizabeth to anyone who has an interest in learning to wire wrap.  Thanks!

She loves what she does and has passed this love to me.

Elizabeth is a self-taught jewelry maker who is passionate about what she does. She truly knows the tricks of the trade and has created a few of her own techniques not found in any jewelry making book. She will show you how to position your hands when bending a wire into a particular shape. She will demonstrate to you why a certain size bead may not work for your bangle bracelet. Her jewelry is unique. She loves what she does and has passed this love to me. I found the series to be very therapeutic and was glad that I took it.

She is a patient teacher and guides the class into creating beautiful pieces.

This series was my first experience with beading and I really enjoyed it. I found Elizabeth to be very knowledgeable and informative about all types of beading. She is a patient teacher and guides the class into creating beautiful pieces. I look forward to learning more about jewelry making in her future classes.

I can tell she enjoys teaching as she always has a smile on her face.

I enjoyed taking Elizabeth’s six week jewelry and wire series at Sertoma Arts Center. I now know more than the basics of working with wire and beads. Elizabeth has excellent presentation skills on how to make bracelets, earrings, necklaces, and findings. She also encourages individual creativity so each piece is uniquely the beginning designer’s own creation. I will certainly be taking more of her classes in my community. Plus, I’ve made a new friend, even better.

Great class. I will be using everything I have learned here.

I really enjoyed the class and am very happy with the bracelet and pendant that I made and look forward to wearing them. It was nice to be in a class with only two other students. I learned the techniques that I hope to use in the future. Thanks.

I honestly learned an extraordinary amount of professional and novel techniques…

As a former jewel creator and fellow bead addict, I honestly learned an extraordinary amount of professional and novel techniques to add to my growing skill set, which I intend on learning from Elizabeth, “The Bead Goddess,” and perfect guide for anyone at any skill level. Looking forward to further classes!

The simple loops with beads class was excellent.

I had a lot of fun and Elizabeth was great about explaining and showing us how to create the loops step by step. We made a great bracelet.

It was very laid back and chill!

I had a great time. Elizabeth takes her time in showing you how to make the loops.
