Diamond and Crystal Sparkler Bracelet Class – Beginner

This is a wonderful beginner pattern to learn how to create.  Working with the new Diamond Duo beads and crystal accents, I will show you how to create this Sparkler bracelet.  I’m positive you’ll want to make more after doing this one.  They look great stacked or even as a wrap.

Bring your fireline and beading needle to class with you or purchase these supplies here the day of the class.

A Beaded Gift Trunk Show

A Beaded Gift Trunk Show
April 13 – 29, 2016

I met this lampwork artist in Tucson this past January and fell in love with her beads.  Simply Beadiful will be one of her first trunk shows and making their debut here on the east coast.  Subtle colors, beautiful finishes, perfect pairs and sets – this alone sets her aside from other artists.  These beads will only be here for 3 weekends so be sure to get in to see her work and find yourself that perfect set for your next project.
