Wire Wrapping Project: The Tree of Life (Windsor Terrace)
Taught by Sharon Zeisel
Sharon Zeisel has been teaching jewelry making in New York City for the past 15 years. With a degree in Art Education, she combines her love of teaching with her passion for beading, experiencing great joy in teaching others how to make their own jewelry. Using traditional beading methods to create on-trend designs, students will learn how to use a variety of jewelry making pliers and materials to make beautiful, wearable accessories as well as experience the mindful zen that comes naturally while beading. Sharon has taught for dozens of organizations such as Brooklyn Brainery, Brooklyn Public Library, Coursehorse, BUST Craftacular, and The United Federation of Teachers (UFT) turning absolute beginners into confident, capable, and enthusiastic Beaders. She resides in Brooklyn with her teenage daughters, and operates her local small business, Bead On Bond.
No class on November 19th!
The Tree of Life is an important symbol in nearly every culture. It's roots reach deeply into the soil connecting with the Earth and it's branches and leaves extend up to the sky getting nourishment from the sun. It is a symbol of deep connection to the world around us. We will be creating our very own beautiful Tree of Life beaded pendants to be worn as jewelry or displayed as art. In class we will learn techniques of wire wrapping, a satisfying and fun beading technique while exercising our design eye.
