Sunrise and Sunset Shores Bracelet
Friday September 8th at 10:00 a.m.
An all day long (6 hour) class, suitable for intermediate and motivated beginners of bead embroidery. The design is built around the focal that features a landscape . The pink version is sunrise, and the orange is sunset. The colors of both versions compliment the polymer clay landscape beautifully. To enhance the seashore- like feel of the piece, we will be using a lot of shaped beads which add great textures. This is a great class for those who want to figure out how to incorporate some of the new shapes into their bead embroidery, and how to work with daring, yet harmonious colors. Each finished bracelet will have the same colors, but the patters can be customized.

Pristigenys Alta or Short Bigeye bracelet
Saturday September 9th at 10:00 a.m.
Full day class featuring a cute, big eyed fish who lives in the Western Atlantic. The bracelet is wrap style, on an Italian lambskin cord in gorgeous turquoise with a magnetic clasp. Wonderful textures and really intense color in a cute package, but the best part is the glow in the dark skeleton. The alternate colorway for this project is green/blue.

Floating Circles Stackable Bracelet
Sunday September 10th at 10:00 a.m.
Yes, we will make the leather base, from hide to bracelet, all in one class, no shortcuts here!
This is a whole day (6 hour class) that will help the students learn traditional leather working techniques, such as using a glover's needle and working with lambskin and incorporating a box clasp with all the leather work. These bracelets are quite different from most bead embroidery projects out there, and allow students to combine bead embroidery with new techniques. It is a class that beginners will get as much out of as advanced beaders. The bracelets  are addictive to make and the color variations are endless!
