~ Shabby Classy Necklace ~
In this class you will learn various
beading basics such as tool use,
opening and closing jump rings,
wire wrapping,
joining chain and findings,
wire loops, clasps.

I will show you how to create a
wire wrapped and bejeweled lace bead.
We will learn how to attach a
vintage rhinestone jewel or buckle
 as the focal point of the necklace.

I will provide Swarovski crystal rondelles
and platinum and chocolate brown Swarovski pearls,
Czech glass druk beads, and vintage lace,
sterling oxidized wire,
oxidized silverplate chain, links and findings.
The necklace you create will be classy enough to wear with your dressier attire, yet
have just the right shabby appeal to partner with your favorite jeans and tshirt!
This year's event is in Waxahachie, Texas
June 24-26, 2010.
So, if you want to have a
