We LOVE To Teach!
Teaching gives us an opportunity to
share our passion about being creativite.
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!

These 2 classes with artist Jeff Fulkerson are for you! These classes will
take the mystery out of silver smithing and get you started making sterling
Friday's Pendant class (September 27th) is for beginners. In Jeff's 7 hour all-day class, you will learn all about silver soldering. We will discuss flux, pickle, solders, torches and the 5 Points of soldering. In this “technique” class, you will solder a butt joint and a ‘T’ joint.

On Saturday, September 28th, Jeff will teach you how to make a sterling silver ring. You can choose a cabochon, then learn how to set it in the silver. This also an all day class of 7 hours, and you will get to take home your completed project.
