Journey Necklace Class
Design a journey necklace with your own beads, found objects, buttons, keys, fabric scraps, shells, coins, feather, crystals...
Thank you for your interest in my Journey Necklace class! Check back soon to see when and where the next class will be offered.
Design a journey necklace with your own beads, found objects, buttons, keys, fabric scraps, shells, coins, feather, crystals... It's a great way to comb through old jewelry too and to bring new life to a single earring, or broken piece. (I'll also have beads/stones/beautiful bits available for purchase to round out your collection or add to it.) After laying out the pieces and deciding upon the best design, you'll learn basic bead wraps and a bit of wire working to attach your pieces to the necklace. Then you will capture your pieces through knotting black waxed cotton into your own unique neck piece. You'll learn my finishing technique and add chain to customize the length. This is an adults only class.
You can purchase a kit with detailed instructions HERE! They make great holiday gifts!
The kit includes: black waxed cotton cord, brass wire, chain, jump rings and clasp, head pins, leather, an assortment of special beads/objects, and a polishing square all in a cute little bag + instructions.
If you have your own tools (flat nose pliers, chain nose pliers and wire cutters) you're welcome to bring them, I'll also have them to share. Everyone will be provided with a bead board to work on.
Feel free to bring extra beads or pieces to share with the class.
