This class might be over, but get first dibs on new sessions and brand-new classes by signing up on our ultra-rad mailing list.

Let’s get knotted up in fun! A twist on the tradition of pearl knotting, we will be making a fresh and modern design with Czech glass beads and plated metal chain.

Using an awl (a handheld pin tool), let’s create a colorful segment of beads and knots and then crimp (affix) our design to chain. A beautiful pop of color will have a floating effect when attached in the center of your necklace.

You will leave class with a beautiful, custom piece of jewelry and two new skills, knotting and crimping. All of the beads and materials are included in the cost of class and a set of sterilized tools will be lent to everyone.
