Students will make a necklace featuring a natural jasper stone enhanced with infused color. The pendant combines the brown and beige of jasper, but also brings in a beautiful olive tint. Students will learn about what cords and closures work well, and have a variety of complementary beads to work with in order to design a necklace that features their own personal style. No previous beading experience is required.
Students will work from a kit that includes the materials needed to complete the project. A variety of beads and colors will be available to choose from, and additional kits will be available to students at a discounted rate.
Kay will be wearing a mask while teaching and all participants will be asked to do so also. COVID safety precautions will be in place.
