Bachelorette Private Craft Party

Long time craft party taker & skilled crocheter, Liz Sankbeil, is getting married in July!!! What better way to spend a bachelorette party than to make jewelry?! Liz had her closest friends gathered together to make Twisted Metal Bracelets with teacher, Chrissy Gemmill.

There were plenty of color choices to choose from and most of the ladies decided to make something to coordinate with their outfits as they were headed out for a night on the town after the party!

This party was so much fun! For us as much as for the bachelorette and her friends!

Congratulations Liz! Thank you for letting us be a part of your celebration!

Twisted Metal Bracelet Wine & Cheese Craft Party

Wednesday we had our popular class, "Twisted Metal Bracelet Design" Wine & Cheese Craft Party, taught by Chrissy Gemmill. She brought an amazing and organized selection of goodies to choose from to make our bracelets!

Everyone dug in to pick their favorite combinations of beads, crystals and gemstones.
Chrissy taught the basic skills of bead link wire wrapping and jump ring manipulation which are the basis for all of jewelry making.

We all had a great time learning the skills, designing our bracelet and getting to know one another!Here are some finished designs...
