I (Michelle from Firefly Design Studio) returned a few days ago from my first Bead Cruise. Our own Heather Powers says she plans her dream vacation and invites 65 friends to join her! Heather keeps us busy, but there is plenty of time to enjoy the ship and ports. For me, it was the top notch classes that got me excited. This is what I took and learned:
Kerry Bogert is a wire worker expert. She has written 3 books and has so many tips and tricks that she is willing to share. My first class with Kerry was an earring class. We received sheets of copper and brass, 24 g and 18g wire. We punched circles and cut rectangles as well as punched small circles around the edges of our shapes. It was fun texturing the metal with fancy hammers. Here they are!
