But, there will also be an option for pearls.
And if you have a few sentimental beads, bring them and we can work them into a piece.
Some are more of the whimsical type. These earrings were made on headpins.
And these with the turquoise dangle were made with eyepins.
Headpins and eyepins! By the end of the weekend, you will clearly understand the difference and know how to make just about anything your heart desires.
As most of you know, I make my pilgrimage to Tucson every year to buy more beads than I could ever use. For that reason, I can supply all the beads for the projects at my house. Therefore, the cost is all inclusive.... you'll get two nights' lodging, all your meals (except one dinner so we can get out as a group to see a little of West Monroe... for you out of towners), and all your supplies.
There will be options for making additional goodies, if you are a fast paced worker and feel the need. These can be made into pendants and hung on ribbon, leather cording or chain as well.
Ok, so tomorrow, I dissect the painting to complete the projects for the retreat. Stay tuned.
