Courtney Gray: Welcome to Creative Side Jewelry
Academy of Austin, online at creativeside.org. I’m Courtney Gray. I started my school here, Creative Side Jewelry
Academy, four years ago. I’m here in Austin, and I’m going to tell
you about jewelry making today. I’m going to talk to you today about how to
choose a jewelry making kit. Now this all depends on what you’re trying
to do, ok. What kind of process? What kind of technique you’re going to use
in jewelry making? This particular kit I have out in front of
me is a kit from Rio Grande—you can find out more about their kits online at RioGrande.com. They have a lot of different kits out there
for different techniques. This one is kind of a basic set up for metal
smithing and fabrication work. Now if you’re doing wax carving and wax work
in more casting, you want to think about maybe getting a casting kit—something that has
wax bars, wax files. All of those tools should be kept separate
from your metals, so you do want separate tools for that. Beading work or simple wire-wrapping work:
there are definitely kits out there for that as well. They’ll come with just simple pliers and some
small tools that you might need for wire wrapping.|
