You’ll love the Mid-November classes at BeadFX

november-imageIn Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

– Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, physician with the Canadian Army Medical Corps; composed at the battlefront on May 3, 1945, during the second battle Ypres, Belgium. For full poem, click here.

We have a lot to be thankful for, including the ability to create and the freedom to express ourselves through many form. Jewellery making is just one way and be able to create items for ourselves, family and friends. Mid-November has several new classes including a new mixed media class with Anne Marie Desaulniers featuring Artist’s Concrete. Jen Rosen will teach you how to do a gorgeous and and on-trend pendant. Marilyn Gardiner has a new chainmaille pattern that is absolutely stunning! For those who are working ahead toward the holidays, Pamela Kearns has a new netted ornament. Metal lovers will delight in Cindy Goldrick’s new collar that spotlights the fall. Finally, Kelly Garland has a new metalworking pendant project you’ll love. And, in case you missed them at earlier sessions, we have lots of encore classes too.
