Beading Party to benefit the SLC Arts Council!

11:16 AM Posted In , Edit This 0 Comments »

Come join us on Friday night at the SLC Arts Council!   

We're throwing a beading party -  Hilary, Donna Schaab and I and a few other jewelry artists will be there to help people make beautiful jewelry projects from 6:00-9:00.


Bring your own beads and findings or you can buy from the supply that will be available there.  Misty Hollow will be loaning us some tools and will have a few supply items available for purchase.

I will be spending the next couple of days going through my Goblins' Market inventory and deciding what I will bring.  I have some pretty lucite flower beads and a few brass bead caps that aren't part of my regular inventory online that I will be bringing.   I probably will never carry these items in my regular inventory because I feel that the prices I get from my Etsy suppliers are so good that I wouldn't want to try to compete!  Bella Noelle sells the lucite flowers I buy and Artful Market has a large selection of lightweight brass findings.



I'll certainly bring a lot of czech glass beads and some of my very fancy filigree items.  Prices will be a little bit lower than online.


People who come can expect to be able to make earrings, pendants, simple strung beadwork necklaces and bracelets and maybe even some brooches if I can find my pin backs.   We probably won't do much with bead weaving because that leaning process is pretty intensive.   We'll have snacks and some music and lots of fun!


There is an entrance fee of $15.00 that goes directly to suport the Arts Council.  We keep experiencing budet cuts even as we are working towards opening a Multi-Arts center in Potsdam so if this evening is sucessful enough, we'll be offering more opportunities like this.

Hope to see you there!  If you can't make it but would like to make a donation to the Arts Council anyway, please visit www.slcartscouncil.org - there is a green button in the margin where you can make a secure online donation.
