For the look of turquoise without the expense, create a simple strand of blue magnesite with glass beads interspersed in the necklace to accent the variation in color of the stones. Several different styles of the stone will be available to fit differing tastes. This is a basic beading course and can easily be mastered by individuals with no previous beading experience.
About the instructor: Kay Vandervort says, “As children we could get out of doing dishes if we read. We read a lot. And, we could watch television if we had a project we were working on while we watched. Hence, all my life I have gotten into the habit of having a lap project—jewelry making, embroidery, sewing, or experimenting with a variety of artistic medium.”
Kay has a degree in secondary education and taught both in high school and technical college before moving to a career in not-for-profit management. She has facilitated trainings at both regional and statewide conferences on topics related to non-profit marketing, volunteer management, and volunteer recruitment and screening. She has taught several jewelry and polymer clay classes in the past at the Ely Folk School.
