Bead&Button show 2018

Hello world!

If anybody wonders what the heck happen with "revive my old blog" - I've got one word for you: influensa. Nasty stuff.

Today I'd like to share the two classes I will be teaching at B&B show this year. If anyone of my readers would like to come, I would be more than happy to meet you in person! Especially all my old buddies from the Etsy Beadweavers team; finally, after all these years to see the faces behind all that fun communication we had.

So, there are two projects: one soutache pendant and one bracelet with GemDuos.

First is Veronique: 

I will teach how to work with soutache to make the jewelry nice and even, share some "secret" stitches of mine that I have not seen other artists to use. The class is 6 hours, so if everything goes well you will have a ready piece of jewelry. Otherwise, I will be around for the entire week and we can meet to finish it up.
You can register for the class here:
I've found some alternative materials for the cabs and a new soutache manufacturer, which helped to reduce the class price (224 USD from 417). 
Cabs are acrylic, but they are GORGEOUS and you will not believe those are not Swarovski. Well, if you will not touch them, to be honest. But the pendant is much lighter because of that, and color selection is way better. 
Date: Sun. June 3
Time: 9:00am-4:00pm (1 hr break) (6 hours)
Anybody who can hold a needle is warmly welcome!

The second class is the Honeycomb bracelet with GemDuos:

That is an easy bracelet to make, as a matter of fact. You will find class registration here:
I've found a wholesale supplier and could reduce fee even for this class. It is now offered at 114 USD. 3 hours, and you will have a ready project. 
Date: Sun. June 3
Time: 6:00pm-9:00pm (3 hours)
The class is suited for beginners.

My favorite color combo is the one in the middle of the picture above. What is yours?
