Serious Chain-ing Class this weekend!

Thank you all for your enthusiasm this past weekend, and for braving the rain! I think everyone had a good time learning about chain patterns! We all learned about different types of available metals, making and cutting rings, and even a little bit about silver soldering. Thank you Ed, and Eileen, for providing such great information and sharing of your tools and equipment, expertise, and patience too! Some of those patterns are challenging! We hope to schedule another class again, so if anyone is interested in future classes, e-mail me at!

Beads of Courage Get-Together

Well the weather was cold and dreary and raining, but inside we had a bunch of warm, happy, and talented beadmakers making plenty of colorful beads for this worthy organization! We hope all the children and families who receive these beads will feel the love and warmth that we all felt this past Saturday! Thank you to all our friends who made this happen!
