Winding up November

Another season is about to pass – the bright autumn colours and clear skies that has inspired a myriad of products. Another season is coming up quickly and ushers in a new palette of colours: red, gold, green, blue, and silver.

Let’s not rush the season too quickly – there are still lots of November classes to enjoy. If you like triangular peyote, check out Pamela Kearns‘ new pendant class. Deborah Beesley‘s new class combines pearls and wire to create a stunning statement necklace and Ann Shewan takes her cement class to a new level with inclusions. Darija Radic will show you how to create fun pendants using sheet metal embossed on the rolling mill. There are more classes with Anne Marie Desaulniers, Iris Rogers Melamed and Gillian Clarke for your learning pleasure!
