Calypso's Cuff

This is the class that I'm teaching on the Bead Cruise next year. I'm in a little bit of a time crunch, trying to get the website updated before an article comes out next month. I'll have more news on that next week.

I designed this bracelet about 3 years ago and it ended up as a gift to my mom. So remaking one, taking notes for the instructions and trying to figure out the easiest and quickest way to make it for my students is quite a challenge. It's one thing to make something, but to teach someone else to create the same thing takes many more brain cells!

Here is the first version of this bracelet, the updated one went a little heavier on the surface embellishment and the clasp went from a single loop to something more substantial.

I'm beyond excited about the classes for our next cruise. I'm so blessed to be able to work with such talented artists! Now I'm off to finish the samples for my beadmaking class. Have a peaceful and creative Sunday evening!

You may have not intended to do so, but I think you have managed to express the state of mind that a lot of people are in. The sense of wanting to help, but not knowing how or where, is something a lot of us are going through. Please come visit my site point of sale material when you got time.
