WHEEE! WE had so much fun today at the fringe bracelet class. Seriously you guys. I can’t believe I actually get PAID for this! Look at all the FUN color and design choices – and EVERYBODY finished during class! WHOOT! WHOOT!
Linda went with red, green, black & white – sassy!
This is Dusty’s. She ran with that fringe and it came out funky cool. LOVE the last minute butterfly addition!Jane’s is actually gonna be a necklace focal; she’ll be adding it to a pretty ribbon. NICE!
Sandra’s was my favorite (sssshhh. Don’t tell!) Hers was the kit that I made that came closest to recreating the sample at the studio. I love the lime green. She’s already gone and bought more beads and started more bracelets. Crazy girl!
So fun. I just love teaching. It’s not work to me at all, and I’m always afraid I’m not explaining things or giving people as much attention as they need – but obviously they only needed a little help from me! (MOM was the exception. But she did it. That was the important thing). And I always include instruction sheets – but those are for later. In MY class – it’s hands on all the way, baby!
I hope the next class that I choose to offer is just as fun and well attended.
I’m thinking either earrings similar to these:
Or another bracelet that incorporates old denim jean waistbands and funky ceramic bracelet focals. But first – I must once again attempt to write AND FOLLOW my own beaded bead instructions. WHY when I do it quickly – zip, zip, zip – does it come out great. But when I stop after each step and write it down – I can NOT follow it and get it to come out right? ACK! So diving back in this week folks – wish me luck. And then to decide which magazine will get the honors. I’m actually thinking either Bead Style or Bead Design Studio. Not as well known – but both worth a try.
And if you haven’t had a chance to check out the newest blog hop (I didn’t participate this time, knowing I had last weekends show, and this class and the prep work to do) – check out Lori McDaniel Anderson’s blog (http://www.prettythingsblog.com/) for the list of the participants – the Bead Hoarder’s Hop – creating something with beads you’ve been hoarding with NO plan (like my entire collection!); almost 200 hoppers! Ready! SET! GO!
