What Students Say:

I have been enjoying this class immensely! I am going at my own pace and love that I will have your lessons in my “tool box” permanently. I have already seen an improvement in my skills that will allow me to move my jewelry to the next level. Thanks Connie for sharing your knowledge and teaching.” Donna D.

I have thoroughly enjoyed your Master Class, Learn to Work with Sheet Metal and Cold Connections. I am fairly new to the world of jewelry designing and DYI jewelry techniques. Your class has sparked a whole new realm of possibilities for me. Thank you for opening the door to the wonderful world of designing ideas!” Gale L.

Although I’ve taken a number of online and in-person classes, this course stands alone in its depth and usefulness for the metalsmith. Connie Fox not only teaches with precision and in detail, she also encourages students with her playfulness and sense of humor. This class would be a bargain at triple the price…I now have weeks and weeks worth of new ideas to try because of all the techniques I’ve learned.” Jean H.
