Boite de Bijoux Workshop

Join Wendy Addison and Kaari Meng, two designers who have been at the forefront of the craft world for years, as they open their archives of old notions, beads, ribbon, glitter, and tinsel and co-teach a treasured keepsake box and jewelry workshop. Wendy will lead the first half of the workshop with an embellished keepsake box with a glass shadowbox lid, displaying a vignette of vintage beauties. Kit will include box form, antique wallpaper, Dresden ornaments, antique boullion tinsel, vintage flowers and leaves, message banners, vintage images, and glass dome. Students are encouraged to bring with them any keepsake items, including tiny pictures and tokens, to embed in their shadowbox lid. Kaari will present her vintage glass jewelry kits and teach how to make a beautiful necklace and pair of special earrings. Basic jewelry techniques include jump ring work, wire looping, and charm making. All materials and tools are provided to make jewelry. Both projects have been developed exclusively for The Creative Connection 2011.
Students should bring to class: Hot glue gun and glue sticks, scissors, and exact-o cutter

Additional materials fee: $40.00
