CLASS DESCRIPTION These little beads are just so adorable, you can't stop at just one! They have so many uses. Hang a few together for earrings. String several into a necklace. Use them as spacers between other stone or metal beads. Once you've made a few, you'll keep finding uses for more!

Using the "metal clay," you will learn how to make a collection of small, hollow "lentil-shape" beads. These are great on their own, but they also pair wonderfully with silver tube or spinner beads! (Artsmiths has a session on one way to make tube beads back on October 2, 2016)

PLEASE NOTE: Pieces will be fired after class, and available for pick-up at Artsmiths one week later.
