The simple bead remains just as adaptable and versatile as it has been through it's long and storied history. Necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings all begin with beads which is why beading is the first in a series of three core jewelry artistry classes being offered. In an interactive, creative, convivial and collaborative atmosphere you will learn how fun and easy it is to transform a single string of black beads into a wide range of beautiful necklaces similar to the ones pictured. Once you have mastered a few simple techniques you will be able to create the perfect necklace for every occasion or a lovely, original gift for family, friends or co-workers. Best of all, at the conclusion of each two hour course, you will leave with your own distinctive piece of wearable art.
