Non-Traditional Wire Weaving Around A Cabochon Workshop: Melissa Eller
“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. She is patient and never rushes through the lesson. Thanks!”
Beginner Stringing & Wire Wrapping Series: Roslyn Leon
"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 course to be very therapeutic and was glad that I took it."
Beginner Stringing & Wire Wrapping Series: Kat Knowles
“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 can tell she enjoys teaching as she always has a smile on her face. I will certainly be taking more of her classes in my community. Plus, I’ve made a new friend, even better.”

Beginner Stringing & Wire Wrapping Series: Isabelle Coats
"I enjoyed taking your class very much. I learned a lot of wire wrapping techniques that I can apply to and incorporate into my own seed bead work. You showed us not only how to make spirals, loops of many kinds, and S-hooks, but always shared your hands-on experience with us. These pieces of advice and the 'Elizabeth Original Tips' are invaluable and not just something one can find in a book. Besides being a teacher, you are also a very talented artist!"
Beginner Stringing & Wire Wrapping Series: Ada Deen
I always wanted to learn how to bead. Taking a class with Elizabeth was the best that ever happened. I did not think I would enjoy it that much but I actually did. Her passionate dedication to teaching us was well worth it. By the end of the six weeks, I had almost spent $300.00 in materials on my own. I can now certainly say I will be taking another class with her. Step-by-step practical instructions and her favorite saying, "There are no rules, which is the first rule" has inspired me. Thanks Elizabeth for lighting the beading fire in me. I can now gratefully check that box in my artsy box. Thank you so much. See you again."

I loved every second of it and I look forward to wearing and giving my own pieces of jewelry."
