In this class we will be learning to make simple wire loops, wrapped wire loops, wire wrapped lace beads, as well as the proper opening/closing of jump rings/chain links as well as linking beads and clasps. Helpful tips and hints will be interspersed throughout this class which will result in techniques learned to create a vintage inspired wire wrapped lace and beaded necklace comprised of wire, chain, sparkling Swarovski rondelles, Swarovski pearls in chocolate brown and platinum hues, Czech glass druk beads, vintage lace, toggle closure, jump rings.  All chain, beads and findings will be included with the class fee. Tools for this workshop will be provided for use.  If you happen to own a bead board with the sections and/or mat ~ bring it for your convenience. But a tray with mat will be provided. Some type of eye protection is a good thing if you have it for use while cutting wire.

Fun, friends and bling! It doesn’t get any better than that!
