Even if You are All Thumbs, You CAN learn to Make Jewelry, I Guarantee It!

"I've tried books and pictures but your
Video Home-Study Course is the way to go."

Dear Eri,

I indeed found your course VERY helpful. Your demonstrations of the techniques are very clear and easy to follow.

I've tried books and pictures but your Video Home-Study Course is the way to go. It is so much easier to follow when I see the techniques actually done along with the explanation.

Also, your presentation is not rushed so that the viewer can easily see exactly what to do. Thank you so much for making it easy.

Dear Aspiring Jewelry Maker,
If you want to learn how to make jewelry and you're clueless about how to begin, or you've tried the frustrating experience of trying to learn jewelry making from books and you've just about given up, I have an answer for you.

I've proven to hundreds of people over the years that they can easily learn jewelry making, even if they think they are "all thumbs."

You see, when you first learn how to make jewelry, you basically have three options:

OPTION 1: You can learn from studying books or following instructions on printed patterns.

OPTION 2: You can take a face-to-face jewelry making class taught by an instructor.

OPTION 3: You can learn on your own at home by watching a video of a class that shows an instructor teaching how to make a jewelry piece.

From my experience working with students face-to-face, and using video instruction, I believe that OPTION 3, watching videos, is by far the best.

Here's why.

When I started teaching others how to make jewelry I taught face-to-face classes. I learned that my students could quickly grasp the basics of how to make jewelry while they were in class watching and following what I was doing.

But as is the case with all newly learned skills, the problems started once my students went home and tried to make the jewelry piece again.

Many students could not re-create what they had just learned in class!

That's when I realized that there are some downsides to taking a face-to-face class.

The major drawback is that you once you leave the class, you will quickly start to forget some of the things you just learned.

This is not only frustrating, but even worse you will have to spend money again to take another class just to remember what you already learned.

After seeing many of my students deal with this problem, I decided to produce step-by-step videos of me making each jewelry piece I taught in class.

Each video showed, with very clear close-ups action shots, exactly how to make the jewelry.

It was a simple three-step formula: Watch Me Make the Jewelry, Copy What I Do, and Repeat on Your Own.

"The close-up video work gives a visual that is a great asset..."

Hi Eri,

I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your Video Home-Study Course. I found your instructional videos to be technically detailed and easy to follow.

Your slow and precise speaking style makes it easy to follow and understand every detail. The close-up video work gives a visual that is a great asset to the verbal text.

The jewelry designs that you've chosen to present in this video are very nice, and something that most people would be interested in learning.

There are several instructors on the net that are well known in the beading world but I would rather listen to you than anybody else out there. You are a great instructor.

Thanks again for your help and inspiration,


When I saw what a positive difference these videos made for my students I knew I was on to something.

I continued to make videos and over time, I have received feedback from students telling my why they preferred my video classes over other methods of instruction.

Here's a summary of the key points I hear most often:
It's easier to learn using videos than trying to understand written patterns/directions.

Many people, myself included, have a lot of trouble understanding beading patterns on paper. Patterns require your brain to translate 2 dimensions into our real 3-dimensional world. Some can do that easily, but many can't, and they become frustrated and give up.

You can learn at your own pace.

In a face-to-face class the pace of instruction will sometimes seem to slow for you, and sometimes too fast. With video instruction you can learn at the pace that suits you.


With a video class you can watch anytime anywhere. If you forget how to make the jewelry piece, you just go back to your video and relearn what you have forgotten.

Excellent value. You can save A LOT of money versus taking face-to-face classes.

One of the major negatives of taking a face-to-face class is that you have to pay quite a bit of money since you are paying for the instructor's time and rental cost of the class room EACH time you take a class. On the other hand, video classes are recorded once so they are much more cost effective than face-to-face classes.

You can get jewelry making instruction that may not be available near where you live.

Although bead jewelry making has become very popular and many stores offer face-to-face classes, there are still millions of people who do not live close to such a store. Watching classes on video are perfect for these folks.

You can access the video over and over again anytime you like.

With a face-to-face class you only get to watch it once, but with videos you get to access the same class as many times as you like. You can replay it, stop it, rewind it, fast forward it.

As you can see, there are many advantages for you when you learn by using video instruction.

And unlike investing in a face-to-face jewelry making class that you get to watch only ONCE, you can play back video classes over and over again whenever and wherever you like.

The investment comparison isn't even close.

Now I have collected the seven video classes that I use to teach beginners how to master the basics of bead jewelry making, and put them into a comprehensive Jewelry Making Home-Study Course.

"Watching you actually make the jewelry is far better than any book."

Dear Eri,

I found your Video Home-Study Course extremely interesting and I picked
up a lot of tips from you.

Watching you actually making the jewelry is far better than any book. I will be on your website daily as I find that very interesting too.

I was looking out for jewelry making classes in my local area but since I found your website I don't feel the need to.

I can learn from you in the comfort of my own room with out travelling.

Thank you Eri.

Introducing my Video Home-Study Course for Beginners

"Bead Jewelry Making
for the Clueless Jewelry Artist WannaBe"



Sorry about using the word "clueless" but that's exactly how I felt many years back when I first became interested in jewelry making.

I didn't know where to start, so I learned by trial and error doing everything on my own. Now that I teach others how to make jewelry I know that there's a much easier way.

How easy?

Do you remember "paint by numbers" where you can paint beautiful pictures just by painting each number a certain color? You do the work, but each step in the process has been made as easy as possible for you.

I developed a similar method for learning the basics of bead jewelry making. I call it the EASY Jewelry Making System and I believe my system is the "paint by numbers" of learning the basics of how to make beaded jewelry.

My system uses videos of jewelry making classes that show a level of do-this-then-do-that detail that is unlike anything you've ever seen.

I go very slowly and often use very close-up angles to make sure you can see exactly what I am doing.

Because of this my students report that they experience faster and better results than they have with any other training methods, including taking live classes.

The Video Home-Study Course I created for beginners utilizes this system. The course combines Seven separate video classes of me teaching the basics of Bead Stringing and Bead Weaving.

These seven classes will give you the foundation you need to start making beautiful beaded jewelry.

With this Video Home-Study Course you can study and practice in your own home, in an environment where you can be comfortable and work at your own pace.

And you can save a lot of time and money compared to taking jewelry making classes at craft stores, as well as avoid the frustration of trying to learn how to make jewelry from books.

Each video shows, with very clear close-ups action shots, exactly how to make the jewelry. It is a simple three-step formula: Watch Me Make the Jewelry, Copy What I Do, and Repeat on Your Own.

"I also love that I can "rewind" and see the specific steps again and again."


I truly enjoyed your course. You have done a wonderful job of fully explaining each step of the process.

I have tried some books, but the steps can be confusing. Being able to actually see someone doing each step is wonderful.

I also love that I can "rewind" to see specifics again and again. I recommend this Video Home-Study Course to anyone who is interested in beginning to bead.

Hello Eri,

I wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed your Video Home-Study Course and have told a friend of mine who is thinking about learning to make jewelry.

"You had so many suggestions and tips to help me turn out a piece of jewelry that looked professionally finished."

Dear Eri,

I really enjoyed your Video Home-Study Course. Everything was very easy to understand. Your instructions were very clear and your tone of voice was very soothing and patient. I felt like I had a very patient friend teaching me how make jewelry. I didn't feel overwhelmed or confused at any time.

I also appreciated your attention to detail. You had so many suggestions and tips to help me (a beginner) turn out a piece of jewelry that looked professionally finished. I really appreciated that because I hope to sell my jewelry one day.

I took a jewelry class at my local craft store before I found your Video Home-Study Course. The class cost 20.00 plus the cost of supplies (another 10.00-15.00 dollars.) I made a three-strand beaded bracelet with charms. Even though it was pretty, I was disappointed with the quality of my bracelet. It did not lay "right" on my wrist, but felt stiff and awkward.

After I got your Video Home-Study Course, I learned an excellent tip from you that helped me fix my bracelet. Now my bracelet is lovely, AND professionally finished. It lays perfectly on my wrist and I am very proud of it.

Thank you for sharing your talent and instruction!
