If you follow any beaded jewelry blogs or subscribe to mailing lists, you probably see a brand new bead shape every week.  There are a lot of them.  Honestly, it's hard for even us to keep up.  But occasionally one shows up and you just know: you're going to be seeing these beads in patterns for a long while.  Ginkos are definitely one of those beads.  We just adore them and we're happy to be teaching this wonderful project by designer Erika Sándor which features them along with a couple other cool shaped beads.  Make a bracelet, earrings, or both!

Instructor is Gail DeLuca. Supplies not included in cost of class. Plan on getting here ten minutes early so that class can start on time.

tree of lifeThese beautiful and intricate-looking wire trees are all over Pinterest.  Don't let their looks fool you, this is a beginners wire project.  Yup, even completely newbies to wire working can make these.  The irregularity of gemstone chips and delicacy of twisted wire give the impression of something done with incredible detail -- and you can convince everyone you slaved over it for days -- but you'll finish your first one in class, and you'll be churning them out after!

These trees make especially good gifts.  Choose your giftees birthstone or favorite color and whip up a one-of-a-kind present like no other.

This class is great for beginners, but we recommend having taken our Jewelry Making for Beginners class.

We all love instant gratification projects. Okay, no beadwork is instantly gratifying, but these come close. You can sit down and finish one of these in fifteen minutes -- less for you quick stitchers. These little beaded beads are also just plain fun. Turn them into earrings or string a bunch of them onto leather for a necklace that will go with any and everything in your closet. Heck, just put them in a bowl and admire them. Promise you won't be able to stitch just one.

This class is great for beginners!
