Free Wire Class - Saturday, January 26th 10 AM -12 noon
|Precious Heart Earrings by Julia L. Hecht|
Join me for a special opportunity in wirework. This Saturday, I will share my Precious Hearts Earring design and demonstrate the techniques needed to make these lovely sparkling vintage inspired earrings. The focal dangles are 18 mm heart pendants from Swarovski - they are absolutely gorgeous. Their size is perfectly balanced with two clusters of crystal dangles. You will learn how to create a strong connection for the hearts using my twist and wrap technique. Plus, there is plenty of opportunity to practice and perfect your wrapped loops. The class is appropriate for all levels. The kit is $26, and is available in three color ways: Tango (shown here), Golden (golden hearts with various golds and reds ), and Valentine (red hearts with reds and pinks). There are only 8 kits available so don't delay. Call with a credit card or come by. We open on Monday at 2 PM.
(More kits will become available in the future when the Precious Heart crystals are available again.)
Seed Bead Classes
Not Grandma's Cameo still has a few places available for Mondays 1/28 and 2/4 6:00- 9:00 PM. This beautiful netted collar class is back by popular demand. I taught this in 2009 and probably won't be teaching it again. So, if you're interested, sign up while you still have the chance.
Floral Fantasy Class by Margo (Uses crystal margaritas - yummy!)
Hollywood Sparkle Class by Julia (A sparkling neckpiece you could wear to the Oscars)
Twin Beads - We've got 'em in every color. This week we will be tubing them and getting them out on display. They will be sold in 5" 20 gram tubes. They are cute, affordable, and offer plenty of design opportunities. We still have our fabulous Super-Duo precision twins and will continue to carry both in every color.
Crime Scene Update...
Many of you remember that when we opened on 3/20/11 only a small portion of the store was ready for shopping. We had a large section across from the studio that was replete with wonderful Czech glass strands, but hanging in a disorganized mess. I referred to it as "the crime scene" as in "Do Not Enter". Eventually I opened the crime scene for business as I worked to clean it up, and shrink it. On Monday, Wendy, June and I roll up our sleeves to attack what remains in earnest. We 3 will spend the entire day reorganizing the back end of the store. We will be bringing out fire polish, druks and Czech pressed glass that we've had sequestered and hidden away. Come visit and see what's happening and what new products we bring out. Poppyfield will be open from 2-8 PM, as usual and at your service to help you with all your beading needs.
