Thought I'd repost my new class for June 12, 2010 - eco chic jewelry making

You can check out http://www.beadhivebeads.com for the scoop!

Making fashionable jewelry? Have you checked your recycle bin, because it is full of inspiration and supplies! Store-bought beads take a backseat in this class as you create unique and interesting components for one-of-a-kind jewelry. Two-liter bottles, plastic bags and bubble wrap, softener sheets, aluminum cans and gift cards all have new life as eco-friendly jewelry components. Come learn how you can create environmentally friendly jewelry from solar powered pendants to plastic bag cuffs. The possibilities are endless.

Hope to see some craftsters in class.

Eco Chic Jewelry: bubble wrap, fabric softener sheets and plastic shopping bags

Instead of creating a whole new post, I thought I would update an old one with new classes I'm teaching at The Beadhive in S. MSP.   I'm also hoping to find out what's happening that weekend around town any fairs or festivals?

What's a birthing necklace?

I've seen really basic ones and really elaborate versions.   Usually during the shower, everyone brings a significant "bead" or drilled stone that has special meaning for the mother, baby, parents - "rose quartz - healthy heart" - kind of like that, someone strings all of the beads together and presents it to mom to be - she holds on to it during the birth "for strength and guidance" and having never had a child myself to help her with any other issues taking place during the labor.  They're really quite interesting and they are often hung in the baby's room after the birth.

Here's a pic from the copper etching class.  I think if you click to my etsy store you can check out all of my Beadhive classes.  I can't wait - I LOVE MSP.

True, true.  Maybe I will spread it out a bit.

Here's another class sample from the soldering class.

Just a little update, the Soldering Pendants class sold out and there are just a few spots in the other two classes.  Would love to see some craftster in class!

I *SO* did, it was amazing! I will have to take one of your classes one of the days, I think the Bead Hive is pretty near my new place, too (I am in South Minneapolis now).

maybe we can arrange a little Craftser meetup when you are in town, we have been trying to do that more often!

A friendly bump, as I'm teaching a new class.  One at the Beadhive, eco chic jewelry making and another at i like you, torch enameling.

Thought I'd repost my new class for June 12, 2010 - eco chic jewelry making
