mermaid cuff class

Hi, quick post.  I am teaching this cuff class this Sunday, Nov.1 at Piecemakers in Costa Mesa CA.  Call 714-641-3112 to reserve your seat.  It's a fun introduction into organic wire wrapping and abstract design for all levels. Info below:

cost: $50
The siren of the sea beckons you into a world of make believe!  Construct a bracelet cuff with wire, pearls, azure beads and sparkling jewels.    Learn about design and composition as we unravel the divine order of adornment in all its splendor and free form wire work.   Of course if mermaids are not your “thing” by all means select another theme.   The excellent selection that Piecemakers has to offer allows for infinite creativity, so go and select!    Please use the sample in the store as an example.

Materials and resources~  Most supplies can be found at Piecemakers unless otherwise noted:

20 beads, pearls, rhinestones, and some semi-precious stones.     A mix of small ,medium and large beads work well.   Bead sizes range from 2mm-10mm

1 larger size focal bead

1 rhinestone focal piece (must have holes to string wire through)

1 chandelier crystal

1 piece of velvet trim w/rhinestone border no more than 5 inches

1 strip of lace to line the cuff 10 x 4 inches max

A handful of other bits and bobs

Jewelry pliers:
Chain nose, round nose, flat nose and cutters
