Class Fee: $75.00

A vintage brass thimble is the beginning component for a necklace Diane Cook likes to call Heart Strings, made using luscious strips of Dupoini silk, snips of fiber and vintage tulle. This will be a day of great fun, as you begin adding various lengths of vintage or brass chain, wire wrapped baroque pearls or glass drops, tiny vintage shoe buttons, vintage rhinestones dangles, broken bits from a vintage rhinestone bracelet, or perhaps a vintage rosary or a favorite theme of charms. No doubt, you will see your Heart Strings soon fill to overflowing. But leave room for a tiny book you will design using a piece of hand-etched metal. Diane will even supply vintage paper for you to tuck inside, as this little books becomes one of the special dangles in your tassel, as you attach it to a chosen piece of chain.
