Stringing 101

6:30-8:30pm

Let’s start with the basics!

Students will choose between 2 styles. The first (pictured) is a double stranded beaded necklace with metal chain as the back portion. The second style is a combination of beads and chain- it can be worn long or wrapped twice for a layered look.

In this workshop, you will learn how to connect a beaded necklace to chain using Softflex beading wire and crimps. Both styles will cover the same techniques, just different looks.

Beads not included, but we have extended a deep discount to students in this workshop.

20% off all beads, tools & materials purchased on the day of the class!
