About this Course
This course will guide you through the process of creating a lovely jewelry piece, perfect for the Holidays or Valentine's Day, but equally fun to wear on any day of the year! This is a beautiful 3-strand bracelet, loaded with charms, beads, crystals, and buttons.
A kit is available, featuring romantic hearts, cherubs and floral blown-glass combine to create an instant heirloom, and a sure attention getter! The technique will still apply if you would rather use your own materials.
We will discuss our preferred jewelry tools, how to set up your materials and workspace, and the two possible methods of construction that will help you create your beautiful bracelet at any skill level!

About the instructor
Creating their signature style mixed-media projects in a loft-style warehouse in historic Santa Ana, California, the duo can often be found on the less-traveled back streets and in the dusty warehouses of long-forgotten specialty businesses, curating the offerings of their studio and procuring beautiful items for their web and retail shops. Other days will find them collaborating on samples for their line of A Gilded Life licensed gift, jewelry, and home decor products with Demdaco/Silvestri, or perhaps dreaming up their next online workshop!
