I’ll be teaching two new classes at the upcoming Ruffles and Rust show on February 19, 2011 at the Monroe Fair Grounds. Here are the descriptions for the:
Spring Fling Necklace
A big, foofy flower created from an antique, French lace bedspread, handmade lace, and real pearls adorn this necklace, and can be removed to wear as a pin! Twists and turns of chains, snippets of French lace, and dangling pearls create some swag and sway. More strands of chain are attached to a section of a vintage metal belt, anchored with a keepsake wooden French rosary bead to make an eye-catching tassel. It’s a romantic look with a little edge, and a lot of style. We’ll do some simple sewing and easy jewelry techniques, and have a bunch of fun.
All materials will be provided in a workshop kit. Please feel free to bring any special trinkets, charms, jewelry bits and bobs you might want to add. The color palette of your kit will be in neutral shades of creams and ivory.
Tools to bring – two pairs of chain or needle nose pliers, round nose pliers, wire cutters and a pair of scissors for cutting lace and threads.
Cost is $75. Class size is limited to 25 students.
Blossoms and Buttons Cuff
You’ll wrap your wrist with ribbon flower blooms, vintage rhinestone, mother-of-pearl and glass buttons, all anchored to a gorgeous white velvet ribbon base. The chic clasp, created from a vintage metal finding nearly steals the show. If you can thread a needle, and do a simple running stitch, you can fashion these shimmering blossoms. Attaching a few jump rings will be the only easy jewelry techniques needed. We’ll spend a couple of hours stitching, and sharing a couple of really fun hours together!
