Your Guide


Melissa Muir

Teaching jewelry is more than just a job. It is my passion. After teaching computer and programming languages for many years, the transition to teaching jewelry was the most exciting and rewarding experience. As a way for me to get into the studio and learn how to use my own tools, I began a feature called Tool Time Tuesday. It is quite a popular program on my YouTube Channel ( So not only do I continue to learn about new tools and techniques in a metalsmithing/jewelry studio, but you get to learn them along with me. Yes, I am a tool junkie, and I LOVE it.

About this course

In this workshop you will work along side me to create fun and modern pair of earrings. We will be talking shaping, rolling, texturing, soldering, and more. This course will have you utilize your ring bender, but no worries if you don't have those tools, you can simply use other items around your studio.  You also have access to a comprehensive resource section with links to helpful videos of tool reviews and other tutorials, as well as links to where I buy the tools and materials used in the course. This project is part of a full course, and based on request, I have broken each project out to a standalone workshop. You will hear references to the "other projects in the workshop" and this is why.

Spinning Boxes

A more contemporary feel and earrings with a twist. Use the ring bender to shape and form the spinning box and create an integrated ear wire.

The entire course costs $45. Don't have time to sit down and finish the course in a week or so? No worries, the course is yours forever (as long as I can afford to keep them hosted). You can watch whenever you would like, for as long as you would like. Please, join me today.
