ClassGraphic

Learn to hand-knot pearls, beads and other treasures to create something new, repair a beloved item, or re-purpose something to give it new life! You can express your style and create unique necklaces, bracelets & earrings, or  restore and repair a broken item.

Learn three methods for attaching a clasp, basic wire wrapping to make earrings, and basic design theory to recycle and combine your broken bead and pearl strands into new creations. Students may bring their own projects from home so we can problem solve stringing challenges or design ideas.

The $40 materials fee covers a kit that includes tools, rose quartz beads and freshwater pearls, clasps, needles, plenty of thread for your projects, a booklet covering all the methods you’ll be learning, and a resource catalogue. No need to bring anything to the first class, except your materials fee, and your glasses, if needed. This is close up work!
