Bead Street Classes

Wire Classes are a hit at Bead Street.  Lots of thanks to Beth for all her work in doing inventory, ordering wire and metal working products, reorganizing and stocking the wire wall and providing fabulous, fabulous samples for potential new classes at the store.  From all her efforts, wire classes have been a big success - so big, she had to schedule two classes on Saturday, February 28th.  Congratulations Beth and a big thank you for all your hard work. 

Due to other commitments, she will not be teaching the next two Saturdays.  So, she will be teaching her Flower Garden Bracelet at 2:00 this Friday the 13th ( that's two Friday the 13ths in a row...)   But stay tuned - more wonderful new projects in the planning stages.

Also on Friday at 2:00, Sandy is teaching a repeat of a Vezsuzsi pattern - two seats left for this one if you can make it during the week.

You can use the components in a bracelet -
 or just use one as a pendant.  

And here is a photo of Beth's class if you can't find it in the class schedule under the Classes heading.  You can bring your own beads or purchase kits in teals, pinks and (I think) purples. Two seats still available here also. For more information, call Beth on  Wednesday, 336-9707

This is a great beginner class and a fun way to find out if you like working with wire.  And this will also give you experience needed to transition into the new wire and metalworking classes coming soon.

Venetian Cuff Bracelet Class

Trying to catch up and post projects that the gals have finished. Bead Street has some fabulous classes all coordinated by Sandy Taylor from patterns from our design team.  

This one designed by Deborah Roberti called Venetian Cuff - we got the name wrong early on - so will try to get that updated wherever needed.  No matter what you call it - this is a beautiful pattern.   Here are some finished projects that the gals have completed and brought in.

Janet finished her's early on and
 got it posted on her blog.

See more photos here

Sandy even finished one. 
Normally she gets color samples made
 and then she doesn't have time 
to finish them  or add clasps.

This one done with melon beads instead of fire polish.
 Still pretty nice!.
Everyone working hard - and notice the treats on the table.
 Beads, chocolate and coffee.
Do you need anything else?
