Hi there, I'm fascinated by the idea of making my own
, and the
classes and events for jewelry makers
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.
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
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!
, a designer, author and polymer clay artist, will be offering workshops in working with beads and in working with resin, polymer clay and foils.
Finally, if you don't have time to take a full class, you can still stop by the Bead Boutique, where a variety of designers will be participating in Make 'n Take jewelry demonstrations. Above, the "Twisted Crystals" earrings by Laura Timmons.
There's still time to enter to win a set of Creativ Festival tickets and class passes, or a copy of
Kata Golda's Hand-Stitched Felt
