New Class Schedule at Mana Beads for Oct-Nov

I will be conducting classes and workshops at Mana Beads in Nevada City, CA for the next several weeks. Check out the schedule after the jump and click through to get more details or to sign up at manabeads.com. If you have questions about any of the upcoming classes, feel free to comment below or contact me!


The new schedule is now posted online and below.

First off, I want to give a shout out to the firefighters that are working so diligently on nearby fires and all over the state. I am about 4 miles from the Lobo fire and the planes and helicopters are on a constant stream overhead. I’m keeping those people who have been displaced or have lost homes & animals in my thoughts and hope a normal life can return quickly!

I have posted the November class schedule below and online with an eye towards the Christmas/Holiday season! We have a beadweaving class for Santa Face Earrings coming up on Oct 21st and one for a Snowflake Ornament on Nov 19th. The Santa Face can also be made into an ornament, if you use larger beads.

Also with the holidays in mind, I’m doing a Special Holiday Edition of Copper Etching. I’ll bring lots of winter & holiday clip art that we can turn into ornaments, gift tags, and whatever else you can imagine. (And if you’d rather make jewelry – I’ll bring all that along, too!)

Aside from all the holiday stuff, check out the schedule below for more great jewelry-making and gift-giving inspiration!

See you soon!
