The Devil is in the Details…

Jewelry – in comparison to – say clothing or furniture – is quite small. Consequently, tiny details are important as they can affect not only the overall look of a piece but its overall mood. The choices we make about small elements and line-qualities can determine whether a piece is seen as classic or edgy, sweet or mysterious.
Adventurous Beginners will learn the basics of Soutache & Bead Embroidery while more advanced Stitchers will be excited by learning a new bezel-design and techniques for incorporating some of the newest beads on the market. All kits come with “choices” (skulls or daisies? disks or hibiscus?) and optional design decisions are offered throughout the project.
Students should come to class with a bead-blanket or bead-tray, a good pair of small-to-medium-sized, sharp scissors and any eyeglasses, magnifiers or additional light source they generally use for close-up work. To complete the project, students will need flat-nose pliers, flush-cutters and round-nose or looping pliers although it is unlikely that these tools will be needed in class. Projects will not be finished in class but Amee Runs with Scissors famous “Whole-Story Instructions” will insure that the projects can be finished at home.  
If you have never tried Soutache, don’t fear!  Amee is a fantastic instructor.  However, we have some opportunities to learn the basics or brush up – Gail will be on hand during Open Beading January 4th in the morning and January 7th in the evening to get you started so you will feel more confident in Amee’s class.
This is a full day workshop.  You are welcome to bring lunch with you and tuck in our small fridge.
Register online or in the store.  Your registration is for the class fee and you will be required to purchase a kit the day of the class.  Kit Fee is $85 (and if you have ever seen one of Amee’s kits, they are FABULOUS and super complete with the most wonderful instructions we have seen!)
