One class that I absolutely had to sign up for was Marie Segal's earring technique. I had been drooling over them since she first showed them on FB. I am so happy with the pair that I made. If you ever get a chance to be in a class with Marie, jump at it. She has a depth of knowledge that seems bottomless and is so willing to share .... she is awesome.

After making our focal bead, Kim took us through sanding (as anyone who reads my blog knows, I hate to sand and buffing. Then we spent the afternoon making either a tile or bangle bracelet. As she had a bangle blank that actually fit, that was my direction.
I am delighted with the results.
|Bangle. I found it was easier to sand than the smaller bead. Who knew?|
