What you'll learn in this crafts class:

Learn simple wire wrapping skills that will enable you to create your own unique mask chain and keep your mask close!

If you deal with the daily struggle of what to do with your mask when it’s not on your face (what do you mean it’s not on your face?!) you are not alone. Do you let it dangle off one ear? Do you pull it down under your chin (ew, don’t do that!) Where is it supposed to go?! According to the New York Times, “Masks aren’t going away, so consider the mask chain.” and we honestly couldn’t agree more. Which is why we got to work creating this class to solve that very issue while introducing - or reintroducing - you to the basics in jewelry making.

In this 2 hour workshop you’ll learn simple wire wrapping skills that will enable you to create your own unique mask chain and solve that age old (months old?) problem of how to keep your mask close and ready for use at a moment’s notice. Using just wire, beads and a few tools, you’ll learn how to create wire wrapped loops, add beads and connect your sections until you’ve crafted a beautiful, one-of-a-kind handmade chain.

And since we’re always suckers for a multi-use project, we’ll even show you how to add rubber connectors to outfit your chain for use with sunglasses too!

In this WebJam you will learn:

  • How to use basic jewelry making tools like pliers and side cutters
  • How to work with jewelry wire
  • How to create wire wrapped loops
  • How to add beads, connect looped section and create a chain
  • How to add lobster clasps and rubber connectors

This class is beginner-friendly; no experience necessary! Choose your beads and wire from our available styles (choose from kits with Multicolor Faceted Glass Beads or Natural Amazonite Round Beads at checkout). Have jewelry making supplies at home? Awesome! See below for suggested supplies and sizes.

Suggested supplies:

  • Flat Nose Pliers
  • Needle Nose or Chain Nose Pliers
  • Round Nose Pliers (suggested but not necessary)
  • 24 gauge jewelry wire
  • 40-50 8mm beads
  • Lobster Clasps
  • Rubber Sunglass Connectors

What you’ll need at home:

  • A nice high work surface like a table or desk
  • Non-slip mat or fabric to lay out beads and catch wire remnants

And this is how a WebJam works:

After you purchase your ticket, you will receive an email with a custom URL link to join. You will be able to add the event to your calendar. Reminder emails will be sent 2 hour and 45 minutes prior to the start. Make sure to login 10 minutes before the WebJam starts to avoid technical difficulties that may delay you.

While using Zoom we strongly recommend video participation. Unlike traditional webinars, we’re keeping our classes small and intimate. CraftJam was founded to foster community amongst its participants and part of this is seeing and interacting with each other as well as the option to receive feedback and support for your projects from your JamMaster.

Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.

Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.

School Notes:
We are BYOB friendly! Crafting is paired best with your favorite drink of choice! But, you must be 21 or over. Younger? Just have a mocktail. No one will notice ;)

It was really fun and the instructor was really patient. I can't wait to wear my creation-even though it may take me a little time to actually finish it!
