No matter how busy you are, you can do this!

You will only need several hours a week, for 1-3 weeks Per Project

Stop and start on your own schedule. It’s self paced and you have lifetime access.

Plus, the lessons can be watched in ONE AFTERNOON. It's condensed down to the length of a movie.

All the projects teach a variety of skills and techniques to inspire your creativity. They’re meant as guidelines, not for you to completely re-create each project. You can re-create 1 or 2 or create your own designs right off the bat.

I’ll be totally honest—because I’m self-taught—you don’t need a course to learn anything. But, if you need more time and prefer learning with structure and a teacher’s support, well, I made this course to help save you the time and the headache of going it alone.

So whether you have a full-time job, kids, schoolwork, or whatever else--you can learn this unique craft quickly and create beautiful resin jewelry without sacrificing your life.

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.

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.

Take the FREE email course Resin Jewelry Basics!

pic of me circle SMALL.png

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.

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 $5-100 (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 kayla@thestorypreneur.com and I will send it to you.

Will the classes Be text-based or Video?

Classes are in editted videos, 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?

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 I pay in 2 payments, do I still get access to everything?

Yes, you'll get immediate access to the entire course regardless of which payment option you choose.
