Eco Friendly Cuff Mimosa Make & Take

On Sunday, Rebekah with a K taught a brand new class, "Eco Friendly Woven Cuff". I received a cuff from Rebekah as a gift a few years ago and had been excited to make my own!

We first began by choosing our colors from the pile of leather scraps she brought.

After measuring our wrist sizes we began to cut through the scraps. Next we started to assemble the cuffs.

Oh! The shennanigans that come with crafting...

Even the teacher needs a break every now and then!

The finished results! They all turned out great! And each one reflects our own personal style and colors!

Autumn Inspired Necklace Creation Wine & Cheese Craft Party

Wednesday's Wine & Chees Craft Party, "Autumn Inspired Necklace Creations" was a very full class! Chrissy had some great examples to copy as well as a huge variety of beads to design your own Autumn Inspired jewelry.

We began with basic techniques; wire wrapping and jump ring manipulation.

Next was the hard part...choosing our beads. How do you pick when there are so many yummy choices???

Then we laid out our design and planned how we would create it. This was a fun part! I love how this necklace looks like little fruit!

We all look great in our new necklaces! Here are the results...

We had some friends take the class too! What a fun thing to do with a group of friends for a Girls Night Out?

Shawn is a big Chrissy fan (aren't we all?!). This was her second craft party and she did a great job on her pendant!

We all had a great time and left with a great piece of jewelry that we made ourselves!
