This is perfect for necklaces & bracelets. In this class, you will make a necklace with Swarovski pearls along one edge.
This technique is suitable for beginners (with some experience) on the marudai & adventuresome, experienced beginners on the disc.
Take one class for the price listed.
Take two classes for 10% off.
Take all three classes for $380—that’s 20% off.
