3. Big Beads, Hollow Beads – This workshop is what it says, big beads and hollow beads. We’ll make big, stunning, in-your-face sort of beads that will get you noticed yet are as light as a feather to wear –well almost!
9. Beaux Bangles – These bangles are made entirely of polymer. Start by making a bangle base, then creating a decorative veneer and finishing it to a professional standard. You’ll want to show off your bangle by shaking hands with everyone!.
My friend Marcy attended Carol Simmons' workshop a few weeks ago and came home with a lovely cane. www.flickr.com/photos/marcympc/6275125940/in/photostream/ I asked for a few scrap pieces because I had an idea to try stretching a complex cane slice to create a sheet that could be turned into beads. There was a lot of red and purple in her cane so I put the scraps on a red base and stretched them out, then started slicing and wrapping.
