For the student who's dabbled in jewelry making before and wants to take the next step! In this class, Val and Lisa will show their students how to do ladder stitching (Chan Lu-style bracelets), macrame work with gemstone beads (including beautiful silver leaf jasper), and beachcord. The instructors will walk students through all the steps and show how relaxing making these wrap bracelets can be. While the students are making their bracelets, they will discuss different types of beads that can be used and other stringing materials. Students will leave with an informational handout to take home. The best part? This bracelet is made so you can easily gift it without having to worry about measurements (or, keep it for yourself)!
