The Half Persian will allow you to get the feel of opening and closing, as well as "scooping jump rings to make a bracelet, before going on to a more advanced technique. We will be working with 2 colors of rings, which will allow you to see the pattern more easily

Instructor will provide Colored Aluminum jump rings for approximately 5 students, in 2 colors ( sorry, you will not be given a color choice) These will be 18 gauge wire in 1/4" diameter (5mm) and 1 clasp per student (s-clasp).  I will have 1 or 2 extra sets of pliers available if you forget your own.  Students should provide 2 pairs either chain or flat nose pliers. My personal preference is to use chain nose pliers...some people use 1 pair chain nose, and one flat nose, or bent nose...this is your choice as to what seems most comfortable for you. If you wish to bring your own jump rings ( so you can have your choice of color) there are 2 sites I can recommend.  1)www.theringlord.com Sells anodized aluminum jump rings in a multitude of colors. purchase the 18 g 1/4 inch rings, or if you are feeling brave, 18 g, 3/16 smaller rings.
The disadvantage is that you need to order at least 2 weeks prior to Collegium as he is in Canada!!!These will run $5.20 per bag of 400 for the 1/4 in. and$3.65 per bag of 500 in the 3/16" , enough for several projects. Plus shipping. 2) www.weavegotmaille.com Sells colored copper rings, ( slightly heavier than the aluminum) also has a huge selection of colors, but these are sold by the ounce due to the cost of copper.18 g. 5mm size (3.16 ") gets about 210 per oz, and 6.75 (1/4") about 160 per oz. In copper you can go to a 20 g wire, and you will get more rings.( about 337 for the 5 mm) but you cannot get the larger size rings. The cost of copper is $11.00 per oz, plus shipping, but will take less than 1 week to receive your order as they are on the east coast.  You may also bring a clasp if you want something fancier than an s-clasp.
