I just made this pendant today at Sparkles Bead Shop and had a great time. I've been making jewelry for almost 9 years and have never taken a class. I've finally just started buying kits and took the plunge and took a class. I'm at a point where I want to learn new techniques and work with other artists. Anne, our instructor, was great and shared lots of tid bits. I can't wait to take another class. One of my goals this year is to take 2 classes. I'm hoping to take another one in the fall at BeadFest or WireFest.
