Beading is a fun and creative way to relax or hang out with friends. In fact, we highly recommend bringing a friend with you to class. When you register for class you will get a materials list. You have the option of bringing your own beads or old jewelry to repurpose, but you can always buy the materials the day of the class.
Make a single strand necklace and learn:
- design tips and techniques
- selecting clasps and closures
- how to start and finish a project
- simple fixes and repairs to use at home
Beading Basics - Earrings and Pendants
In this basic class you will learn the wire wrap technique used to make earrings, dangles, pendants, and charms. You will have time to practice your new skills before making your own masterpiece. Tuition includes all materials and supplies for either one pair of earrings or one pendant. Additional materials will be available to purchase should you want to make more than one item. As with most of our classes, please feel free to bring old jewelry to repurpose in class.
