WHAT YOU WILL LEARN If you love jewelry and have always wanted to try creating your own necklaces, earrings and bracelets, then this workshop is for you.

Unleash your creativity in this easy to follow class where you will receive hands-on instruction, live demonstrations and guidance in designing beautiful and lasting jewelry.

Together, we'll string colorful beads into a necklace and bracelet using the crimping technique.

As a bonus, we'll show you a simple wire-wrapping technique to make a pair of earrings.

You will walk away with skills you can use over and over again to repair your own jewelry and create pieces that are uniquely yours.

You will also learn how to choose beading supplies depending on your project and will be able to choose from a variety of beautiful and affordable supplies if desired for a small extra cost.
