Sparkle Charm Bracelets: Friday- 3pm, Saturday- 4:30pm

Taught by: Riki Schumacher

Bring more sparkle into your life by making this adorable charm bracelet in my workshop.  You will be building a small charm from scratch. I’ll show you how to cut a little metal, form a wire bezel, do a touch of soldering with a butane torch, stamp a word or two, then add some fabulous rhinestone chain, giving your charm a touch of sparkle.  Then attach your sweet creation to a beautiful chain bracelet, and finally tie on a hand-torn shred of silk for more lusciousness.  All levels are welcome.
