The expression in my headline is a glib and somewhat inaccurate expression describing how medical training takes place.

Having taught in a Family Practice Residency, I assure you the phrase is an over‐simplification. But it’s true that physicians in training also teach others who are less experienced coming right up behind them on the educational ladder.

I encourage you to include teaching in your “mix” of jewelry making activities. Teaching gives you the opportunity to share what you know, reflect critically on the processes you use and inspire others.

It’s also a great way to make jewelry home parties more fun, and teaching children how to make jewelry is a joy.

If you have experiences teaching how to make jewelry you want to share, comment below.
