Testimonials

"I was first introduced to Eugenia's wire wrapped jewelry at a bead show in 2009 and was "WOWED" by the beauty of the jewelry she had created. I immediately asked where to sign up for a class and have been hooked ever since. I've taken many classes with Eugenia and she is always patient and generous with her time and knowledge. I am so happy to have found someone so talented (and close to home) who is eager to teach and share her skills. I highly recommend Eugenia to anyone looking to learn to make their own jewelry."
by Debe Vanderheide, Cloverdale, BC

"Eugenia Chan is an inspiring and committed instructor with more brilliant design ideas in her little finger than most people have in their entire head!"

"Eugenia is where awesome meets reality. Eugenia has opened my world to wire work and design. Think of something new and Eugenia can help make it come true. Wonderful lady to learn from, you never lose when it comes to learning with the best and that is what she is "The Best!"
