4/6/19 – DRAGON’S BACK BRACELET - I was inspired by Sam Wescott’s challenge to herself to review her tutorials so here is an updated version of Dragon’s Back which now includes directions for using another 2 hole bead, RounDuos! Basically a flat spiral variation, this pattern has lots of room for personalization by varying the loops with bicones, drops, druks or pearls. Beginner: $10 class fee + materials. Repeats 4/10 or by appointment.

4/27/19 – CYMBAL FINDINGS TILA BRACELET – BeadSmith recently introduced their Cymbal line of almost 200 silver & gold plated metal findings for seed beads, GemDuos, SuperDuos, Silky Beads & Tilas! My bracelet features the Soros III Bead Endings and the Kalogeros Connectors and an assortment of leftover Tilas with little windows of sparkly bicones. A great stashbuster project; Intermediate: $15 class fee + materials. Repeats 5/1 or by appointment. Stop by to see our other Cymbal Findings!

3/30/19 – KNOT RING – Taught with permission and designed by wire artist Joy Thomas this stylish ring makes for big impact! We’ll make a practice piece in copper 1st then move on to sterling or gold filled wire. Intermediate: $20 class fee includes
copper only materials; bring your ring mandrel & tools or check out our selection. Repeats 4/3 or by appointment.

​​3/23/19 (2PM-5PM) – SOUTHWEST DIAMONDS & RICKRACK BRACELETS – Part 2 of Wanda Pitzele’s Brick Stitch Series where we will delve into chart reading. Charts let you create freeform designs with irregular edges, eliminate the need for word charts and by following picture charts you can see if you have picked up the wrong color a lot quicker. Choose which one you'll want to tackle; RickRack is for those more comfortable with other stitches. Wanda’s hidden clasp is a beautiful feature that really enhances this design. If you couldn’t make Part 1 last month, join us for both classes! Intermediate Level with class fee: $20 + materials.
