New Kheops Bead Pattern

Do you have plans for the weekend?  If you are staying in town, why not join us on Saturday.  Our students have a fabulous time together, learning  new projects and oftentimes sharing sweet treats.  Since I've been out of the country for what seems like a month and don't know about the food,  I do know Sandy has another great project scheduled.

May 23rd - Saturday 1:00 - 4:00,  By popular demand, Sandy again teaching a New bracelet pattern using the New Kheops and New Silky beads.

If you would like to try these new beads, now is your chance.  A couple of seats still available.  Just call 336-9707 to reserve a place.

Saturday Classes at Bead Street

Just in time for Mother's Day, a sweet Love Knot Wire Bracelet is being taught by Beth - this Saturday - new time - 12:00.  Learn how to make these cute little knots and then cage your accent beads.  

This would be a great project to learn and then you'd have a gift to give.  Or, if your Mom (or very special friend) is available, why not take the class together. Think of the memories you would be creating.  

And, Beth promises to referee if necessary.  Our students are always well behaved but occasionally have been known to fight over beads.  I know you'll have fun.

For more information, call Beth at 208/336-9707 and you can stop into the store to see the sample in person.

Sandy is also teaching Saturday - 1:00 -  a new design using the new Ripple beads.  Can't wait to see the finished  projects from this one.

Multi-Gem Leather Wrap Bracelet Class

The recent Leather Wrap Bracelet class was certainly successful. The students had such a great time - really fun day.

Beth and I put kits together to make it easier (and less costly) for the students.  We actually sold some of the kits to others who already knew the technique and didn't take the class.  And yes, due to popular demand, we will have these kits available again soon.  

We might even put together some other colors based on the gemstones we recently bought at Bead Fest Santa Fe. So stay tuned for more color variations.

Sue beaded this one using one of our kits.

Sue loved this class so much,
 she went home and immediately beaded two more. 
 Think this is bracelet number three.

This one belongs to Ardith.
She also went home and beaded a couple more

Same technique but slightly bigger beads - 
Sue picked these colors.  Pretty nice.

Isn't this also beautiful?

These were made so they are adjustable as well.
Just in case you want to give
 away an extra one or two.  

This is the original version -
 and inspiration  from Paris

We do plan to offer this class again - but probably not until July.  If you would like more information or would like to be included in the next class, send an email or you can call the store 208-336-9707.

Also, be sure to check out the fabulous new wire and metalsmithing classes Beth has planned for  May.  You can see photos listed  under CLASSES in above header.

Bead Street Classes - May 2015

The May class schedule has been updated under Classes heading above.  Don't have photos of all the projects as yet but you can see samples at the store or contact Sandy or Beth for more  information.  Exciting new projects this month using many of the new beads we just received.

Here is a photo of some of the new Es-O beads - I call them SuperDuos on steroids. More colors coming this next week.
