Bead Fest

Bead Fest Philadelphia is going to be a hop, skip, and a jump away so I'm treating myself to two classes. I feel pretty good about my bead weaving work but I need help working with wire. I'm hoping the Zig-Zag Bracelet class will do just that.

Zig-Zag Bracelet
Instructor: Joy Cichewicz
Technique: Wire and Beads

Make a bracelet with wire zigzags and wire wrapped clasp that will beautifully accent lampwork beads. Students will leave with both a copper/bone practice bracelet and a sterling silver/lampwork bracelet.

The beginner PMC class needs no tools. The supply everything so you can see how you like working with metal clay.

Just The Facts. Ma'am: Beginner PMC

Instructor: Ed and Martha Biggar
Technique: Metal Clay

For the beginner: learn about PMC while making at least two pairs of earrings and a pendant. Find out if you love this material while using instructor's tools and techniques in a limited-cost class; pick up finished work the next day.

The PMC class is from 9-12 and the wire class from 5-8. How will I ever fill the time? Oh, there's a market, she says slyly? I guess I can be persuaded to spend some time there!

  1. Oooh, that zigzag bracelet is *gorgeous*, and the polymer clay class sounds very interesting! Have lots of fun, and I'll look forward to reading about your experiences (and seeing your finished jewelry!)
