Next Free Zoom Class from John Bead This Year

In this class we will demo a fun spin on basic bead stringing to create a bracelet with Cornelian star beads and using 2-Hole Twin beads to make a starburst shape in the stringing. We will finish the bracelets with a charm and demo a fun dangle you can make with craft wire and any beads you may have in your stash. You can use any colors you like to create this bracelet.

Register for this class and download the PDF on the blog post linked here.

We have room for 100 participants.

These are the Michaels classes we have to look forward to this month.
