|Blue Sea Glass Pendant and Earrings|
I've been taking jewelry classes at Speckled Feather Mercantile in New Castle, CO for a few months now. Although I was intimidated at first, I really enjoy learning new techniques, and the artist who teaches the class, Elyce, is one of the sweetest people I know. She is always able to put me at ease, and so far, has been able to undo whatever bone-headed mistakes I have made.
This particular class was great because I knew all the basic skills and was able to do it independently and even help a few people out.
I love the look of sea glass, and I'm happy to have a piece of jewelry in my collection made out of it. The fact that I made it myself is a bonus!
To make these pieces, all I had to know how to do was make a wrapped wire loop, and how to open and close jump rings- that's it! Now I have a beautiful set- a pendant and matching earrings! These would make awesome gift sets...
If you live near New Castle, CO, and you are interested in art classes- you owe it to yourself to go see Denise and Elyce at Speckled Feather. You won't regret it!
