Bangle & Dangle Bracelet Craft Party

Last night Stacie Spencer taught the Bangle & Dangle Craft Party!  We had a really fun group of students and everyone created a great piece of jewelry!  First we had to learn wire wrapping.  We practiced on base metal before moving onto the good stuff...

It was tricky at first to learn how to make them but once we got the hang of it, we moved onto the sterling silver wire! 

So many beautiful beads to choose from.  Some people made theirs sparkly and some chose more earthy colors...
But they all turned out great!  Here are the finished results!

Encaustic Collage Craft Party!

 Yesterday we had a full class for the encaustic collage craft party!  Margaret Hluch teaches this class that is always a popular one!  Encaustics is a technique of collaging and layering with hot wax. 
 Using photo transfers and adding fiber elements make the collage unique and personal.  The results looked great!  This class always fills up quickly so keep your eyes out for the next encaustic class if you are interested in learning this fun technique!
