February 3 and 4/Sunday & Monday-- the "Sleepless Beader" herself, Leslie Rogalski will join our Jewel School host! Leslie will share some of her new design ideas using findings, wire kits, tools and more from Beadalon.
Known for playing with what some of us think are unusual materials, like tubing and O rings made of rubber, Leslie has made this stylish "statement" design. (Tune in to see it live!)
When speaking with Leslie about her continuous creative drive, I love her statement, "My passion for making jewelry is as much about the journey and the process–it’s a meditative escape from the world–as the end result." How cool are these flat kumihimo bracelets that Leslie made for this weekend's show, using Artistic Wire?!
February 6-- Beads, Beads, Beads!! We all need more Beads! Our lovely Jewel School host will have some exciting new bead selections and a lot of customer favorites to offer this Wednesday. Tune in to see what you need (or simply have to have) for your next design!
