You will master bead making using Fimo, Polymer, (modelling clay) in this workshop. Making your own Fimo, Polymer clay beads is a fun way to pass time, and you can then use the beads to make personalized jewelry, custom gifts, and gorgeous decorations and accessories. Homemade beads add a personal touch and artistic flair to the jewelry that you can never achieve with store-bought beads. Homemade beads also allow for more creativity and uniqueness of style, especially when you master the basic process and begin to explore more complex patterns and shapes.
My passion is to create beautiful works of art from handcrafted beads that I have created from scratch. I have been a bead designer for 35 years. Millefiori beads made with Fimo create a gorgeous design for beading. I will teach you some basic, beautiful designs in bead making. You will be able to assemble a lovely, one of a kind piece of jewelry to take home with you. Something you can cherish for many years.
e.g. veggies e.g. crackers and cheese, banana bread, etc.

I will conduct our workshop at my Creekside House, with a year round creek that runs through my yard. The running water is relaxing and soothing. If weather permits we will be working on our designing outside otherwise inside sitting in a circle at a table working together making our unique creations.
Bring air tight containers to store your Fimo, chains, leather cord, wire, or spacer beads you desire to string in between your Millefiori beads to make necklace or any special jewelry findings.
