I TOOK A JEWELRY CLASS AND IT WAS FABULOUS!

I took the most fun, informative and fabulous jewelry class this last Wednesday!
It was a class to make a wonderful sterling silver link bracelet.
Actually the class was two separate parts.....the first class you made the bracelet and if you wanted to add the charms, you took the second class.

My favorite part of the first class was the clasp! Is it not the neatest thing???
And my favorite part of the second class was picking out my charms and crystals, learning how to wrap wire *correctly*, and learning all of the different fun things you can do with wire!

There were only two of us in the class so I got extra needed attention......Okay, I was still the last one to finish but just look at the treasure I made!
My favorite technique was done on the light blue round bead. You can't tell too clearly in my pictures, but that bead is suspended in wrapped wire - isn't that so cool???
I really loved everything about everything that I learned and my teacher, Shelli, is so patient with those that 'get frustrated'!
Shelli is the owner of The Garden of Beaden in Fredericksburg, Texas, and she has a class schedule on her website - check it out! Her classes are amazing and her shop is FABULOUS!!

I LOVE my bracelet and I'm going to make more to sell in my Etsy shop.....or maybe you should call me with your order...................if you read my previous post you saw how on top of things I am right now!

Have a fabulous day!!
