Class Fee: $75.00

Resident artist Dede Warren is back at Gilding the Lily teaching a beautiful, double-wrap necklace Endless Strand of Pearls. Inspired by artist Tami Hichman, Dede created this necklace from vintage strands of pearls, old rhinestone rhondelles, disco balls, coin pearls, mercury glass beads, and more. Adding in special bits and pieces found in vintage broken jewelry complete this one-of-a-kind necklace. In this workshop you will learn jewelry basics such as wire wrapping, cold connections, use of Beadalon wire and crimp beads, as well as how to make your own headpins using a torch and sterling wire. You bring in a few focal charms, and Dede will supply the rest!

• Jewelry tools (without teeth):
needle nose pliers, round nose pliers, wire cutters
• two or three focal charms (available at Gilding the Lily)
* Feel free to bring any special beads, gems, or pearls you'd like to add.
