Combining beads with wire to create chains for hanging focal pieces or extending beaded ropes is the perfect way to personalize and finish your projects.  Students will explore different gauges of wire, bead sizes and tools while creating a variety of unique and eye-catching links. These links will be used to create a sampler chain or a quick reference clip.  Pick your favorite link and begin a chain to wear alone or use to dangle a special pendant from.  Simple beaded clasps will also be covered. Chain making is a very systematic, relaxing and satisfying process and a wonderfully useful addition to other jewelry.

This is a Beginner class, no jewelry experience needed for this class. 

Ages 14+ Welcome.
