    Join instructor, Chris Eisenberg for this bracelet technique that was the beginning of her love affair with all things beading . . . hence the name, Genesis! This stitch is based solely on the spiral stitch which is an absolute staple of bead weaving and a pattern that offers countless variations to continue building your skills.  As always, we will begin session one with a review of the basics of beading ~ setting up a space, tools needed and best practices for beaders. The basic pattern of the spiral stitch will be presented and practiced for the duration of the session.

    Students will reinforce and gain comfort with this technique by completing an assigned amount of the project during the week before the finishing class. Session two will focus on problem solving and finishing techniques.  Variations of spiral stitch will be discussed for further inspiration!

    Kits will include everything needed to make your bracelet. Please verify your mailing address when you register.

    **This workshop will be conducted via live streaming with Zoom.**

    This "Flow" bracelet is made using only two kinds of beads . . . seed beads and half tila beads which have two holes. The process of weaving this pattern is consistent with other bead weaving techniques with the exception of a more intricate thread path needed to accommodate beads with two separate holes.

    The weave is very accessible and meditative resulting in a bracelet so smooth and flexible that it practically flows around your wrist! The accompanying kit will include everything you need to complete one gorgeous bracelet and have a fabulous time doing so! 

    Kits will include everything needed to make your bracelet. Please verify your mailing address when you register.

    Students will need to have a good working surface and light, reading glasses (as needed), scissors and an adventurous attitude!

    Learning how to form metal using the hydraulic press opens new possibilities for your work! In this class, you’ll learn how to create multiples of the same shape, which you can turn into beads, pendants, and components for earrings, bracelets, and necklaces. If you’re using textured metal, you won’t lose any detail as you form the components. 

    Students will learn how to: 

    • Texture metal using the rolling mill
    • Cut disks using the disk cutter and form them using dapping punches or a dapping block in the hydraulic press
    • Create squares, diamonds, teardrops, and other non-spherical shapes using pre-made silhouette dies and the hydraulic press

    Students will be able to produce a bead, a pair of earring dangles, or a pendant. They will also have time to create samples of each forming technique.

    Students should bring:
    • Pen, notebook, fine-point Sharpie or other pen that writes on metal, 6” metal ruler
    • Optional: texturing punches, textures to run through the rolling mill 
    • If you want to work in silver, please bring your own 24 or 22 gauge sterling sheet at least 2” x 4” (if you have a larger piece, don’t cut it)


    Details:

    • This is a beginning / intermediate level class.  Students should know how to saw, pierce, drill, anneal, and file metal. Riveting and soldering skills will be helpful but not necessary.
    • Please wear closed-toe shoes. Wear hearing protectors when warranted and safety glasses; bring your own or use BARN's. Tie back long hair. Avoid loose-fitting clothing and jewelry; roll up sleeves.
    • $15 materials fee is included in the class tuition.

    Instructor: Joan Hammond began working in metal in 1994, when she started taking metalsmithing classes as an antidote to documenting computer software. What she discovered was a medium that not only utilized her previous training in painting, printmaking, and ceramics, but also opened the possibilities of creating art that can be worn. Family artifacts and history, plants and animals, and the textiles and jewelry of non-Western cultures inspire her current work, which Hammond executes using the techniques of chasing and repoussé. Her long-time interest in Asian art, which deepened when she studied calligraphy and tea ceremony in Kyoto, Japan, continues to influence her aesthetics and sense of design.

    Hammond exhibits locally and nationally, and her work has been published in Metalsmith magazine’s Exhibition in Print. She is a member of the Seattle Metals Guild; has served on the Board of Northwest Designer craftsmen; and co-chaired a national conference for the Society of North American Goldsmiths.
