Course outline: Have you ever collected pebbles from the beach and then wondered what you could do with them? Join Ann to learn how to drill different beach pebbles and then turn them into a fun bracelet. Add your own special flare to the different pebble components, making this a truly unique piece. Once the bracelet is completed you can move on to making a necklace or earrings.
Skill level: Beginner
Technique: Drilling stones
Bring to class: Students can bring pebbles that they have collected over the years or charms they would like to incorporate into their pieces, if not the instructor will have lots of beach pebbles to pick from. If students have their own rotary tool (Dremel) and would like to work with it in class they are more than welcome to bring it. If bring your own tool check that it will hold a bit that has a 3mm shank (diameter) not all rotary tools will hold a drill shank that small, if not they can get an international chuck available on Amazon for about $15 that will work. Also an apron and hand towel are good things to have.
