Beading is a wonderful way to exercise the mind, hands, and eyes while also creating a lovely piece of jewelry.
In this class you will learn to fashion a fun and beautiful pair of hoop earrings, hand creating the loops with wire and embellishing them with colorful beads, all while learning how to use different types of jewelry pliers and a standard "wire wrapping" technique.
Come learn a new craft that can translate into gifts, supplement income, and inspire you to decorate yourself!
(We'll be working with various colors of wire and a selection of colored beads).
