Why Should You Be A Maker?

Learn From Home,

At Your Own Pace

The art of a western trade can be learned right from the comfort of your own home, at your own pace.

"When I started making jewelry over 13 years ago I knew I really wanted to learn silversmithing. Work, family and life put that dream on the back burner for way too long. The upfront cost and time needed to travel to school wasn’t something that I could do so it would have to wait. Until one day - Nevada shared a new opportunity to learn from home at my own pace. When she opened Be A Maker School I was waiting anxiously to click that button and join."

"The very first time that I uploaded inventory to my website & posted on social media I had pieces for sale and I sold out! I want to thank not only my instructor, but each Maker that has taken the time to answer questions & offer advice. This group & these classes are so amazing."

We would not be doing what we are doing today if it were not for the online classes we took with BAMS. What was once a dream of ours is now a reality. We have now had 6 months of success with our business all thanks to these online classes and community!
