Upcoming Workshops

Do you have a stash of beaded jewelry laying around that you just don’t wear? Give it a new life by upcycling your beads into a fresh pair of earrings. By learning a few basic jewelry-making techniques, you can transform your less worn or second-hand beaded jewelry into a unique pair of earrings you’ll want to wear every day. No prior jewelry-making experience is required. This workshop is great for the amateur jewelry maker or an intermediate jewelry maker looking for inspiration.
