Yesterday Judy and I went to jewelry making class here in Myrtle Beach. It was at a place called Beach Beads - owned by Heather and Chad Samson. We had signed up for the basic class. Our instructor - Heather Samson - reviewed with us some of the basics before we started making our bracelets.
For the focal point on my bracelet I chose a set of 3 glass beads hand made by Heather. They are Lampwork beads. You can link to the Beach Beads website HERE. With Heather's help I selected other beads to complement the Lampwork beads and set to work. I was fortunate that my design came together quickly and I was able to complete my bracelet during the class.
Here is my finished bracelet. The photo is not the best - I had it sitting on a table with a glass top - but you get the idea.
I wish I had thought to make coordinating earrings - I have contacted Heather to see if she could make me a pair and ship them to me.
We had a lot of fun and have decided that we'll be making more bracelets and perhaps a necklace or two. Not sure about earrings.
