Sparkling with Stephanie's Sparkle Sprockets

Ohhh - Try saying that five times!

Mark your calendars now and join us Saturday, February 16 for a full day of classes PLUS a book launch of Crystal Jewelry Inspiration. Our own Stephanie Dixon, a Swarovski Ambassador, is a contributor and features her Sparkle Sprocket project.

Here is all that is happening!

Introduction to Netting
9:30am - 12:30pm
Instructor: Maria Rypan
Choose your level of initiation into world of netting with richly textured beads. Start by stringing a combination of beads, turn around through the accent bead and begin netting. Work top to bottom for full control of how long to make your beadwork. Hard to believe that simple vertical netting could produce such a vast array of styles! Dive in!

Class fee: $35 + HST payable upon registration; kit fees range from $18 to $40, payable to the instructor

A Pair of Bracelets
9:30am - 12:30pm
Instructor: Cindy Goldrick
Learn how to create beautiful folds in copper and create these two very different bracelets using the same technique: foldforming. One bracelet is composed of 1 x 1 inch copper squares joined by basic chain mail. The other is cut out then folded and formed around a bracelet mandrel. You can embellish with your own focal if you like.

Class fee: $35 + HST payable upon registration; kit fee: $15 payable to the instructor

Crystal Jewelery Inspiration Book Launch
12:00pm - 2:00pm
Join us for cake and refreshments as we kick off this new gorgeous book! Come out and meet Stephanie Dixon who will autograph copies of the book for you.

Sparkle Sprocket Earrings and Pendant
2:00pm - 5:00pm

Instructor: Stephanie Dixon
What happens when you combine Swarovski Elements, a coiling gizmo and some ParaWire? You get SPARKLE SPROCKETS! Students will learn how to use a coiling gizmo, add crystals to the wire, wrapped loops and a briolette wrap.Note: photo shows Sparkle Sprockets in a bracelet; not as earrings and a pendant!
Class fee: $50 + HST payable in advance; kit fee: $25 payable to the instructor
