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.

Students Can Expect to:

  • Receive all materials and tools required to create and complete their project
  • Learn and apply the 3 T's of basic beading: terminology; tooling and technique
  • Learn how to apply differing design elements to create a necklace that reflects your individual style
  • Receive hands on instruction and tricks of the trade from the instructor
  • Leave each class with your personalized, completed necklace

Course Requirements: Basic Beading is the first of 3 core courses offered. We encourage you to register for the remaining 2 courses, wire-wrapping and pearl stringing as well. By doing so, you will not only increase your overall knowledge and skills but also facilitate your advancement into intermediate and advanced courses given throughtout the Fall
