Have you just been beating yourself up about missing the last 2 Naughty Secretary Club jewelry classes here in Austin? You kind of should be because we had tons of fun rummaging through the big pile of vintage crafty curios I brought to make our charm bracelets. We had almost more fun one Saturday morning making fabric jewelry. Sadly I can not for the life of me find my pictures from this class! If you missed the class and the fun, stop the deep pangs of regret in your heart and call (512-707-2405) or email Craft-o-rama in Austin to sign up for the new batch. I’m teaching 3 classes including a brand spanking new one, paper jewelry!
Collage Cuties Class: Tues. 6/17 6:30pm-8:30pm
Love what you see on the scrap booking aisle, but don’t care a thing about it? Incorporate all the fun papers into your jewelry! In this class you will make a bangle bracelet, large disc earrings and necklace using paper and decoupage medium. Learn to look at pictures in magazines, junk mail, wrapping paper and more in a whole new way. Feel free to bring any paper you would like to class, but Jen will also bring a large stash of her collage curios like vintage wrapping paper, wall paper, book illustrations, old cards and more for you to choose from as well as jewelry supplies and decoupage medium. Fee is $40.
Fabric Jewelry Class: Thurs. 6/19 6:30pm-8:30pm
And you thought fabric was just for sewing, oh no it is for jewelry making too. In this class we will talk about ways to use fabric in jewelry design. Each student will be able to make a ring, pony tail holder and two different bracelets! We will learn how to use a button covering kit, make a fabric quilting yo-yo and ribbon wrap a bangle bracelet. Not to mention lots of discussion throughout about incorporating in unusual elements like fabric into your jewelry design. I will bring my huge suitcase FULL of vintage fabric for us to play with! Fee: $40 and includes materials
Charm Bracelet and Earring Class: Sat. 6/21 11am-1pm
Learn the fundamentals of jewelry making while whipping up your own one of a kind Revamped Vintage Charm Bracelet, and matching earrings. This fun and informative 2 hour class will cover the basics of jewelry making like the difference between head and eye pins, wire wrapping, and how to open and close a jump ring. Class supplies include everything you need to make your charm bracelet and earrings including a giant assortment of vintage beads and charms from the Naughty Secretary Club stash for you to choose from! You will need flat and round nosed pliers as well as wire trimmers for this class. You will be able to buy a set from the instructor on day of class as well for an additional $10. Fee: $40 and includes materials.
I hope to see you in one or many of the classes. Later this summer I might be doing some classes on how to start and run your small business as well as how to market your small business!
P.S. I wanted to give a shout out to one of my students the Paper Squirrel. Check out her fun Etsy store for amazing vintage supplies!
