After my beading classes at FIT, I could't wait to learn more jewelry-making techniques. The Fall jewelry-making classes at FIT won't start until last week of September. So, I decided to look for classes near where I live.
Michaels opened a branch in Fresh Meadows a few months ago. It is located at 187-04 Horace Harding Expressway. The store is big and organized. They are offering a number of classes and I just noticed that there's now an option to register online. I signed up at the store earlier this week for the Intro to Crimping class scheduled this coming Friday. The class costs $25.
Well today, a very nice lady taught me how to manipulate findings to create jewelry. We created the earrings together. I did the bracelet myself when I got home. So, this is my craft project for this week. Something handmade and something blue!
This is my first attempt to create a dangling earrings and a bracelet by making simple wire loops.
