Peas in a Pod–great gift idea
Date and Time: 09/20/2020 from 1:00PM-4:00PM
Instructor: Zanetta Hoehle
Prerequisites: No experience necessary.
Use copper wire to learn to close two ends of a flat weave into a cylinder to form an open pod. Add crystals to the center of the pod, to finish one end with a loop and add an additional crystal, and to finish the other end with a bail so you can hang it from your favorite chain. This project lends itself to using birthstone colors and celebrating family.
