  • This is such an awesome opportunity workshop !  Now is your chance to gather up all those broken bits of beaded necklaces and bracelets and pieces that you've been intending to fix that have been sitting in your drawers for (if you're like me) years !!  Some of your favorite pieces, beaded necklaces and bracelets may be among them, as with use, the strings wear out, the clasps break etc.  Hopefully you've been able to gather up all the beads, findings and bits that rolled or bounced away, or if not, if you have any close matches, bring them along.    Carolyn will help you to restring, tighten and attach findings for future years of happy wearing.  Be prepared to help with the repairs.   Bring extra beads if necessary if you have them, in case we need to redesing.  Bring all the stuff and we'll get to as many as possible in the 2 1/2 hours.  Costume jewelry only, no pearls or welding tonight.  Thanks.
