Jewel School Schedule
September 5 & 6- Our show planner, Debbie has put together some really nice products! Wednesday (today) be sure to watch for a Crystal & Silver Tone Slider Kit (with 56 components!) as well as a 117 Piece Silver Tone Cross Shaped Pendant kit. (Pictured below is the "slider" kit.)
Thursday Jewel School will feature a "Basics of Bead Stringing" kit, that includes everything but the beads! Not to worry though, because one of the bead selections will be a 3 strand combination of Bamboo Coral and Magnesite.
September 9 & 10- Have you ever tried to make small, consistent knots between pearls or special beads? The answer to this challenge will be revealed on Jewel School, when jewelry artist and tool inventor Maureen Oliveta (Rennie) will share how easy it is to use her original Easy Knotter!
As you can see in Maureen's photo below, knotting isn't just for use between beads!
Also appearing on these episodes of Jewel School, will be the "Fire Behind the Wire", Julianna Hudgins! She is bringing 2 NEW Beadalon kits: "Pendant Making" and "Twisted Artistic Wire" with her and will also talk about Beadalon's fun-to-use Coiling Gizmo.
When thinking about using the above mentioned "gizmo" and Artistic Wire, checkout this colorful creation by Julianna!
