Instructor: Micki Lippe

You can make one--but can you make (and sell) a hundred? The skills involved in making one-of-a-kind jewelry aren't quite the same as the skills required to produce a successful commercial line. This supportive class will cover the essentials of production work from idea development to basic marketing. See why the pieces you present to a gallery must be consistent and unified. Learn how to streamline design and fabrication without becoming repetitive or formulaic. Whether you want to hone your personal vision or need some pointers on reaching a broader audience, this class will help you get there. Prerequisite: Students must bring examples of at least 3 pieces they see as parts of a production line.
