How to get the most from this course

This course contains both written instructions and many videos for creating the "Circle for a Landing" pendant.

The written instructions will guide you through the steps needed to build all the parts of the pendant by using photos in each step. Each section heading in the curriculum lists the steps needed for the section, i.e., Beading the Base - Base.Steps #1-14. There is a lot of interaction between the written instructions and the videos - they are definitely meant to be used together (see the Overview video below). My suggestion is to download and print instructions for each section, and then watch the video(s) as you work.

As a designer, I find it's often difficult to describe or photograph the steps when creating structured pieces, and that's where the videos are fantastic! Students can watch how it’s done, and ask questions in the Comments, just as if I was in the classroom and giving a demo. Plus, the videos are always there as reference, simply because you've enrolled in the course... What could be better than that?

The video below highlights key pages in the written instructions, while showing the interplay between them and the videos.
