Border Wrapped Cabochon Workshop June 10th 11:00 to 2:00

It’s been a while since I’ve offered workshops to the public.  I’ve gone through a lot of personal changes since the end of last year and I needed a little time to catch my breath.  What a ride it has been!  Now I’m ready to get back to the grind – and so it begins!  The first workshop will be a Border Wrapped Pendant class.  It’s been a REALLY long time since I’ve offered a wire wrapping workshop, hasn’t it?  If you want to learn this technique, you’d better jump on this one!  Who knows when it will be offered again?  See below for the 411.
