Cuff bracelets from Beadfest
A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of teaching a class at Lapidary Journal Beadfest. It was a long drive to Pennsylvania! Flying wouldn't have been all that easy either since i had a lot of kits and tools to carry. It was great fun to see friends there and even though teaching classes is enjoyable, meeting the new students a great experience, staying with Joy and Kathleen, and Susan was the icing on the cake..
Here's a picture of some of the finished bracelets. I didn't think to get a picture until almost everyone was gone. Everyone finished their bracelet and they all looked great. The skill levels in the class varied from a total newbie, to others who had been working in metals for quite some time. So here they are! brass, leather, and stones from Lake Michigan.
I have a few kits left with complete instructions in my jewelry and supply Etsy shop. It's hard sometimes to keep up with two shops but I want to keep the lampwork shop just for lampwork, although the patterned copper washers should be in this shop and not lampwork, it's hard to transfer them, so that's how it is. They'll stat there!
Anyway that's the musings today. It's time to get cracking on the jewelry for the Lincolnton Apple Festival next weekend. Today is 'earring day'
see you soon!
