Beading class

I have been wanting to take a beading/jewelry class for a long time but could not find one. Finally my local Joann's found a teacher and I was able to sign up. After looking at the teacher's samples I was very excited everything was beautiful and to my style.

Because the class was so large 10 ladies in all she added another session in a couple of weeks to learn wire wrapping among a few more things that she didn't get to.

As you can see I made my first bracelet. I had a lot of fun in the class; the teacher was very patient and checked everyone's work after every step to make sure we had done it correctly.

I can see how this new hobby can become very addictive, I'm now looking to make a necklace...I'll keep you posted

ETA: Many thanks to all who commented on my jacket. I am glad it is now hanging in the ready-to-wear side of the closet!

  1. You're in for some trouble...beading *is* addictive. When I was working too much to have time to sew I consoled myself with beads. At least they take up less room than fabric stash!


I love hearing from you!
