Dale Armstrong Wire Classes.
Title image the artist at Cougar's Creations

With more than 30 years of combined experience as a rockhound, lapidary, and wire jewelry artist/designer and instructor, Dale “Cougar” Armstrong shares her experiences with students on a regular basis. Whether in a Group Class situation, or in her studio “One-on-One”, she gives her all to each student.

Dale is honored to be a chosen instructor at Interweave Press Beadfest and jewelry events, at the JOGS Show in Tucson, AZ. As a guest instructor, she also travels around the country conducting a variety of workshops. Dale is a regular contributor to the Step-by-Step Wire Jewelry magazine. Her work has also been published in many other venues.

As a wire jewelry instructor,

My Mission: is to assist in developing a community of “expert, wire jewelry artists”. Teaching, what are in my personal opinion, the necessary basic, intermediate and advanced techniques/skills, to be able to execute about any jewelry idea in wire.

My Goal: to help a student recognize and develop their own, personal style; thus getting more Wire Jewelry Art into the public eye, (which will educate the consumer, and increase the desire to own an original piece of wearable art, enabling the artist to create and sell at the prices necessary to survive in the extremely competitive, jewelry market).
