You are the second person this week to talk about this website and the site looks awesome. If I could take a class it would be the Crochet Bracelet class.

Hey Andrew! Cool prize! I haven't even thought about metalworking yet so now could be the time! Beaducation has a bunch of classes I would love to take! Especially the Lilies and Leaves class in metalwork! Very cool!

Thanks!

flyingbeader said...

Wonderful class! I've bought some items from Beaducation & got them super pronto. Love the look of this class. I did look at the other classes & I'm lusting for the leaves one with Janice B.

southernties said...

I would love to learn more about stamping on metals....I would find this absolutely riveting! A future class that would be interesting would be to combine the stamping with some type of permanent epoxy or glass cover to be able to add embellishments! Sort of a scrapbooking on metal class!

EmbellishYourself said...

This "Sit and Spin" class is actually top of my list right now. Beaducation is one of my favorite places to shop. I just received their book and some new metal stamps I purchased with my Christmas money and can put them to good use with this class!

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

There are so many on there I'd love to take. Probably the Riveted Rock Band. Looks like something I'd love to make!!

Would love to take either the Introduction to Riveting class, since I've been thinking about this, or Simple Soldered Pendants. They both look cool.

I am in, want to do more riveting. Hope I can win one of these classes.

baglady said...

There are so many good choices- its hard to chose one. I think I am going to be signing up for some of them soon. The soldered rings and bezels looks like one I would really like to do as well as the sit and spin one.

sallyh12 said...

I love the Beaducation site and I would take the Torch Enameling class. I never win anything but I keep trying. My luck has to change one of these days, right?

Beaducation has so many great classes, but ever since I saw this one I've been wanting to take it.

I've been lucky enough to attend a few of Steven James' classes in person. He's a great teacher as well as extremely creative. I've had Beaducation "bookmarked" since Steven posted on his facebook page that he was going to be teaching this riveting and stamping class online. So, whether I win the contest or buy it myself, I WILL be attending Steven's virtual class on riveting and stamping very soon.

I love Beaducation classes and would be thrilled to win the Sit and Spin class. It's one of my must-take classes, along with Twisted, Knotted and Fused.

I'm really hoping to get into metal-smithing some more, so this is the perfect class to help! Thanks for the chance to take it!

cw said...

Hi Andrew, thanks for this free class prize. This is the class I would like to win. I'm new to metal work and would love to start here.
Beaducation has some other wonderful classes and are the best at giving all the valuable information needed to complete a project and learn a new way to design.

I love that Beaducation site. I was on there for hours last night after reading your post and checking out all their classes. Looked at several of the free classes to get the gist of it. Will definitely be taking a class from them, whether I win or not.

Just tweeted about your giveaway.

I have taken some of the beaducation classes and they are wonderful and well worth the price. I love that you can review them as often as needed and whenever you want, and the selection just gets bigger and better. I would love to take the Sit and Spin Riveted Pendant class.

Regina said...

What a great site, I will begin by taking their FREE clases and then my ideal class(es) would be the Introduction to PMC and then what is really speaking to me is the Empty Box Pendant class.

Regina said...

Hi Andrew, I just blogged about this great site and your generous giveaway. Thank you.

I think I would start with the riveting class. I want to try it but need information before I start hammering or punching holes in things!

I love Beaducation - they have so many wonderful classes and a lot of them are free!! This class has been at the top of my list since I saw it. Would LOVE to take it. I also have the soldered bezel and rings and the rivited bracelet on my current list of "want to take". Sounds like you are having a wonderful time in AZ.

Attorney Angela Lund-Logan said...

I had no idea Beaducation had free classes. I bookmarked then and will be spending a large portion of my time in the near future learning from them. It was hard to decide which class I wanted over the rest. After some contemplation, I selected Herringbone Bezel Pendant. I love cabochons (and have some nuggets)so this would be very helpful.

thebearaffair said...

Hi Andrew.....I love the Beaducation site. I've ordered from them for years and have taken many classes. It is so nice to be able to look at the tutorials in your jammies:O) I was just checking out the Sit and Spin class yesterday. Sure hope I'm the lucky winner...Thanks Andrew, Sally at thebearaffair@cox.net

Laura said...

Aside from this class, I'd LOVE to take the torch enameling class. I bought torches for both soft glass lampwork and fine silver fusing but neither really held my intereste for long. Now I'm searcing for a way to use the torch(es).
Also have all kinds of stamping tools longing to be used in new ways!
