What happens when I click "Enroll Now?"
When you go to enroll, you can pay with a credit card through a secure processor or through PayPal. See below.

Then you'll be all set, and you will have immediate access to whichever option of the course you chose! And it's going to look like this when you get inside:
You can access the course from nearly any device so long as you have Wi-Fi! The platform will keep track of your progress and show you your % complete.
If you choose the Core Curriculum, you can add bonus classes à la carte (however, the Complete Course will save you $50 and you'll have access to ALL bonus classes [$100 value])
After you've enrolled, you can start at any time. The course is self-paced and available to you forever.
You can choose to make just the first project or all of them
You're not expected to make every project, but there are takeaways from every lesson that let you go on to do your own creative thing. You do not have to buy sterling silver and gold-fill components, and can use other brands of resin rather than what I suggest (though I can't promise the results will be as good) AND you'll still get all the benefits the course has to offer.
All the skills it teaches still apply and work! Regardless of the cost of the materials you choose to use.
Stick in a lower price range with lower quality metals if that's where you are comfortable. This course is about teaching the skills to make resin jewelry--use the materials that are easiest for you to get your hands on.
You can always make more jewelry, purchase more supplies, and so on.
So go at your own pace. Start where you're comfortable and go from there.
I teach the methods I've developed over 3 years of dedicated work on this craft.
You literally get to look over my shoulder as I create resin jewelry and see exactly what I'm doing behind the scenes on my crafting table as I explain the lesson.
I decided to share my craft and teach others who want to learn but are as unsure, lost, and confused as I was when I began on my own.
While I had to learn the hard, long way I want to offer an alternative--something structured, organized, and easy to understand so that you can start creating beautiful jewelry sooner rather than later.
Not ready? Need something more basic? I understand. I created my free email course for people just like you.
I've been creating jewelry for 3 years, developing my own style and methods over time.
For half of that time I've been delving into epoxy resin crafts, and in the beginning I hit many roadblocks. From ruining my curtains to throwing away pieces that would never cure--I was disheartened and wanted to quit.
I had no direction, no guide, and no other teacher besides failure.
While I decided to continue, I've come to a point where I want to help others who were in my shoes when I first started.
Creating these classes is my way of sharing my craft so others can enjoy it, too. Without as much fuss and failure as they will meet taking the solo path.
I want to make the journey shorter for you. Easier. More enjoyable. All around better--so that you can learn to create beautiful, unique resin jewelry no matter who you are or where you're starting from.
I have no experience with this . . . Can I still take this Course?
Absolutely! I'm creating these classes so even those with no experience whatsoever can learn.
Can I get a refund after I purchase?
If you are truly unhappy with the course (whether it's the starter option or the complete course) and contact me within 14 days of your purchase, you will receive a full refund and no longer have access to the course. After that timeframe, refunds will not available.
Will I need to buy anything else?
Yes, supplies and tools. Depending on what you already have at home and need to get, the price could be between $25-100 (the more you choose to make the more supplies you need to purchase). Some items you will already have at home and some will only be available in online stores. If you don't have the free supply and tool PDF, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send it to you.
How long will it take to complete the course?
Several hours a week for 1-3 weeks per project depending on your schedule. If you have ample time you could finish a project in a week. It's flexible and self-paced. Lessons do not exceed 15 minutes of video. You can always take a break and come back to the classes when you have more time in your schedule.
Will the classes Be text-based or Video?
Classes will be primarily video, with text-based information to supplement the lessons as well as printable PDFs and visual guides.
Do I have to use the same supplies and brands you do?
No! But for best results, I do recommend using the same brands I emphasize (which is only several items on the supply list). It's still possible to use other brands, though the results may be slightly different. I cannot attest to the quality of brands I don't recommend.
how will I access the classes?
Through a platform called Teachable. Once your username and password are set up and your payment has gone through, you'll get access to all the lessons immediately (except for any future updates that have yet to be added to the course).
What's included again?
Whether you choose the Starter Option with 1 project or the Complete Course with all 3 projects, each project's sections go in the following order: Set Up. Creating Your Charm. Creating Your Jewelry. Bonus Lessons. Plus you'll get direct 1-on-1 support with your teacher (me!), printable PDF checklists and visual guides to support the lessons, and upcoming bonus lessons How to Wire Wrap a Gem for bracelets and my Ombre/Color Block technique using miniature daisy petals.
For how long do I get access to tHE course?
Forever! You get access for a lifetime, so you can come back to it whenever you want.
What if I want to sell my crafts?
I have a project in the works that will help you do this! It will be a design library with business and design resources, and will be accessible on a monthly subscription basis. To recreate and sell my designs you'll need access to this library and to verify the quality of your work by sending a sample to me (and I'll be sending it back!).
What if I don't want to sell my crafts?
You definitely don't have to! Let it be your hobby. The main aim of this course is to teach the skills for a handworking hobby to promote the mind-body connection, rejuvenate the soul, and produce jewelry that is uniquely you because it came directly form your heart and hands.
If ArtResin is non-toxic, why do you recommend masks/gloves/special disposal?
It’s it uncured form, epoxy resin is still chemicals. Most likely, if you own any conventional nail polishes—they actually require the same special disposal (they should not be thrown in your trash, either). They're also considered a slight safety hazard if it gets on your skin. Personally, I’m sensitive to smells and chemicals and while this brand is safer than most, I still like to be safe and recommend my students take extra precautions instead of not enough precautions.
