She will be popping up shop with all of her fabulous kits plus she will be teaching a couple workshops! Take advantage of this opportunity. She will be teaching The Mini Pod and It’s a Wrap, click here to see our listing of workshops.
The Mini Pod
I greatly admire the Raku pieces of Marianne Kasparian. This is a beautiful small Raku pod, which allows the focus on simple beadwork to show off the Raku. For this piece we will utilize a technique of mine I call my easy flip cabochon. This technique combines beadwork and finishing in one simple step. You will find this technique useful on other beading projects. The fringe is optional.
*Prerequisites: Students be proficient in the peyote stitch. Other techniques that can be learned in class are a basic bead embroidery stitch, stepping up in circular peyote.

I am back from Tucson with loads of goodies!
If you have not been following, Tucson is the largest gem show in the world, where collectors from around the globe come together to create the most massive marketplace of treasures. I have now been going for a couple decades and I cannot begin to describe just how much is there. It is a whirlwind trip of selling our own designer clasps and buying up all that I can afford! I am always so invigorated when I return. I get to meet with big industry names, many that you may have seen on JTV, and collaborate with some amazing masterminds. If you want to get a real feel for the energy, check out our FB page for my live video. The debut of all my finds starts this weekend and will kick off with our Private Preview Party on Friday night. If you have not gotten your Golden Ticket to the party, call the shop now! See you there! ~Kay
