The Dragonfly Girls can teach you to make your own jewelry too. We offer private lessons in your home as well as custom classes for local community organizations.

Dragonfly Girl Lisa was a certified jewelry instructor with the chain of Michaels craft stores for several years, teaching at the stores in Oakville and Burlington, Ontario, and now she offers private lessons in your home in the Oakville or Burlington area. If you’d like to make your own jewelry, don’t miss this chance to learn how.

Each class lasts 1.5 hours and costs $30 including all supplies, with a minimum of four people. Learn about basic jewelry making techniques and practice them until you can do it yourself. Then make a necklace, bracelet or earrings. We complete one full project in each class.

Techniques we teach include:

How to use bead stringing wire and crimps
How to use gauge wire and wire wrapping
How to make your own earrings
How to create chain maille jewelry using jump rings

Plus other classes designed around your requests! Send us a photo or a web link and we’ll let you know how we can teach you the technique to make your own version.

Please contact Lisa at with any questions or to book a private lesson.

Dragonfly Girls has provided our Art Therapy Program with jewelry making classes over the last year. I cannot speak highly enough of the phenomenal job Lisa does both in teaching and promoting creativity! She comes to class with a broad knowledge of jewelry making design and technique combined with a teaching style that engages and inspires. Lisa has a very welcoming and laid back personality that allows my participants to feel respected and comfortable. I would gladly recommend Lisa Michaels of Dragonfly Girls to anyone looking for a jewelry making instructor!  Kathy Bernard, 3R Coordinator, Freelton, Ontario
