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!
