The Tierra Frenzy is here

Sometimes design ideas pour out and luckily these past 3 days they have just been overflowing!  And if you are me, you have to be awake at the wee hours of the morning to capture these creative splurges, or better yet, be at the shop listening to Sade while being surrounded by little glass beauties.

With that said, I have come up with a project for this saturday's class- The Teirra Frenzy Necklace.  Using high quality, U.S.-made cast and lead free metal compotents, this copper-plated piece showcases many interesting ways one can use little treasures- from chains, to bails, charms, links, beads, spacers, head pins etc. 

A simple, round, disc-shaped, Murano glass bead with silver dichroic takes center stage.  What a lovely job it does. 

This should be a fun class. 

Those who choose to participate in this class, they will learn techniques in wirework and an off-loom beading technique known as Right-Angle Weave with a 'twist'.

The details are as follows:
