Creativ Festival: Jewelry and Beadwork

creative-fest-22 Hi there, I'm fascinated by the idea of making my own jewelry, and the classes and events for jewelry makers at the Creativ Festival certainly are appealing. Of course, it doesn't hurt that everything's so sparkly! Here's a quick peek at some of the things the festival organizers have lined up. picture-36 Learn about everything from basic fashion accessory design to making complicated crystal jewelry with classes from people like Nick Regine and Kim Paquette, representing Crystallized Swarovski Elements. picture-43 Designer Marilyn Gardiner will instruct classes on how to make several different bracelets, using a different chain-mail technique in each class. I think that some of these would make unique bases for charm bracelets! picture-52In addition, Lisa Pavelka, a designer, author and polymer clay artist, will be offering workshops in working with beads and in working with resin, polymer clay and foils.
