We are back in swing of things and have had fun creating new products such as the Lucky Penny Necklace which combines Stringing and Bead Weaving methods. I even created a pattern for coordinating earrings (shown above).
The evening class at McDonald Center will offer Kumihimo weaving starting the last week of October for 2 sessions. For this you will need to purchase a Kumihimo weaving disk in class for $4.50 - a bargain compared to beading websites! Classes at Bead Fests teaching this skill can run from $90 to $150. You can try it out for just $10 a class. Not bad. And you will have a gorgeous comfortable bracelet to wear at the end of class. All you need to start is some yarn in several colors or narrow fabric ribbons in 4 colors, plus some findings.
I hope you can join me for an upcoming class at either location.
I guarantee you will have fun and learn a new jewelry-making skill or two.
