Stitching Pretty Inc
Super Tassel/Silver Making Class All Day Tuesday
So….. What happens when you put a bunch of creatives' minds together?
Well, to each his own - But we have the Threader, the Beader and the Silver Maker for this class! Out of that comes this totally awesome tassel you can attach to anything! Think hand bag, drawer pull, tree ornament, tie back, on a bed side lamp, anyplace you want to add some very unique and special bling! We figure if you don't stitch but love blending colors of thread....and you don't bead but love the wonderful look of all those little glass pebbles? And maybe you are not a silver clayer - but you love bling! This is the perfect class to combine and try all three! ok! So who haven't we covered? I mean texture, color and bling!! What’s not to love! It’s really two very cool classes in one!
We will be creating this crazy amazing Tassel!( which just everyone needs in their life!) Cathy Lyon of White Lyon Needleart designs our neighbor here in sunny Florida, will take the morning to show us all the wrapping, twisting and stringing of thread and beads. Michelle Arsenault, of Michelle Ink designs will present an intro to the alchemy of Precious Metal Silver clay to new comers (and encourage anyone else with clay experience) You will have a blast with her molds and textures and props to finish off your special tassel with some sparkle on top and a gleaming charm for movement.
You. Do. Not. Want. To. Miss! This!
You may make one just like the samples or do your own thing
Your beads - you will pick from an assortment of colors of beads for your center.
We will take a break for lunch.
Then you will create the silver accoutrements, YES you will make them!
10gms of Fine Silver precious metal clay that will be used on your choice of a wide assortment of molds to pick your cap and charm. We have all the tools needed and they are provided for in store use.
We have the silver finishing, seed beads, long #10 beading needles/ beading thread for your use.
You only need two balls of valdani #8 and your scissors! You need nothing else! You just need to sign up!
(We will mail you your silver pieces after Michelle fires and polishes in her home studio)
The pumpkin colored tassel does not have its silver cap and charm on it yet. As soon as it does we will update the pictures.
The tassels are beautiful even with out the silver add ones. You will be able to make many of these once you learn. Think of what a cool gift these are or added to a package instead of a bow. So many uses!
***Please note you only need to bring two balls of Valdani #8 pearl cotton in the colors you love and a pair of scissors!
