What we're about
I want to introduce, to those who are not aware, and re-introduce to those who are, of our monthly BEADERS' CIRCLE MEET-UP group at BE DAZZLED BEADS. This group provides for great Meet-Up opportunities for beaders and jewelry makers to come to the store, and work on beading and jewelry design projects with others who share their passions. Great time to sit and chat with like-minded craft artists, share insights and experience, keep up to date with new beads, beading materials and projects, and have a good time.
This group meets one Saturday afternoon each month, usually 1st Saturday. Upcoming dates are posted online on our website: http://www.landofodds.com/class-schedule .
Our get-together is in two parts. From 1-2:30pm, we run our Jewelry Design Discussion Seminar Series. Topics deal with what it means to be fluent in jewelry design, managing the design process, or applying theories and concepts. There are no fees for the Discussion Seminars. If you are attending the Discussion Seminar, you will need to preregister. Just give us a call, or register online. Space is limited to 12 participants.
From 3:00-4:00pm, we offer a Jewelry Clinic class. These Jewelry Clinics go beyond a simple introduction to a technique, and focus on mastering that one technique, and then learning and practicing some variations on that technique. These clinics have a $15.00 fee, which covers instruction and materials. Tools are provided for use in class.
You are also welcome to use the classroom space from 2:30 - 5:00 pm to work on projects singly or together during this open time period. Some members of the group work on a particular project out of a recent Bead and Button or Beadwork magazine. Others work on their own projects. Everyone shows and tells what they have been working on. And people work on individual, group or collaborative projects. No fees, just fun! All skill levels are welcome. There are no fees for this "Work and Play" time.
You might also be interested in our free ORIENTATION TO BEADS & JEWELRY FINDINGS class. This 2 1/2 hours class is offered once a month, usually the first Saturday of the month from 9am-11:30am. You can also find the specific dates on our website calendar link above.
