Susan is terrific! She is very attentive, personable and her prices are very reasonable. Most important, she is very knowledgeable about jewelry making and repair. So happy to have found her on Thumbtack. 40 years of accumulated jewelry needing repair are now getting new life.Jun 21, 2015Verified
Susan is an extremely knowledgable person and she is a great teacher. She's patient, creative, and very accommodating. I highly recommend her classes.Jun 9, 2015
Susan's classes are accompanied by very comprehensive instructions with photos that make doing a project much easier. Her demonstration is clear and her bead selection and tool and materials selection is excellent and reasonable.Jun 7, 2015

- What types of customers have you worked with?I teach weekly classes at Emeritus College (part of Santa Monica College), and I also teach through Santa Monica College's Continuing Education program. My most recent classes have been Kumihimo, Wire Rings, Chain Maille, Making Chains & Clasp from Wire, and Bead & Jewelry Basics. In my home studio classes, I have recently taught Sheet Metal Stamping & Texturing, Metal Patina, Viking Knit Bracelets & Necklaces, Spool Knit Necklaces & Leather/Chain Weaving. I usually teach jewelry-making techniques through the completion of specific projects, and my project list includes about 240 different techniques. Please let me know what particular type of jewelry-making methods you are interested in.
- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?The recent Metal-Stamping & Viking Knit classes I've taught at my home studio have been so popular that I've had to break them into 2 or 3 groups rather than the original single class I had planned.
