Yesterday, many ladies enjoyed making earrings for the very first time. This was a workshop offered at our church’s Women’s Conference. I only attempted something of this size and skill because five other jewelry making friends generously agreed to come and share their talent and bead stash with us all. A local bead store, The Bead Gallery, donated the use of tools and extra beads as well. We were able to offer such a gorgeous buffet of beads, chain, and findings. Everyone made two pair of earrings using a simple wire loop, complete with handmade ear wires. About 35 women in all.
Great way to spend the afternoon. You’ll see in these photos, lots of smiles and many faces of very serious concentration. Sadly, I may have just lost some loyal customers who were in the group. Oh, dear.
