We LOVE To Teach!

 

Teaching gives us an opportunity to

share our passion about being creative.

The creative process is exciting,

and the outcome is rewarding. 

Anyone can be creative

with just a few "tools."

We are here to inspire you

and give you those tools:

professional beading techniques,

a relaxed environment,

and concepts about color & design.

 

In addition to scheduled classes,

classes can be arranged by request 

for indiviuals or groups. 

We have taught large & small groups...

for Girl Scouts to earn badges,

and for families to do activities together. 

Classes for groups can be done for

team building, parties & for social time.

Instruction for groups

can be done on, or off site!

Hand tied pearl necklace 3 strand.png

Class: Pearl Knotting

Learn how to hand-tie knots between pearls to create a beautiful, high quality necklace.

Though classified as a gemstone, pearls are extremely unique, largely because they are the only gem material formed and found within a living creature. Pearls are a soft gem which means they can be easily abraded or scratched if they rub against each other over a period of time. Stringing pearls on silk thread and knotting between each individual pearl provides protection from constant rubbing which could cause damage to a pearl’s surface. By comparison, pearls that touch each other by sliding on metal chain are likely to chip or crack over time. 

You will learn how to hand tie knots, without any tools, to create a single strand necklace that you will be able to wear when you leave. This is a great opportunity to create something that you can wear every day, with any outfit, or pass on to another generation.

Date:  Sunday May: 26th, 10:30-1:30pm

Price: $20 includes snacks. 

Materials purchased for the class will be discounted15%.
