Even if you've never crocheted, this class if fun. The joy of arranging beautiful beads in a pattern pleasing to your eye and doing it in the camaraderie of like-minded creatives can never be under-estimated. At the end of a long day, relax into a simpler time and feel yourself opening to a new world.

I'm energized as I share my love of beads. Friends say I'm easily amused. Well, I did sell "air" for years. (radio broadcasting) It's fun for me to find ways of explaining tactile ideas in simple steps. This necklace uses only three stitches total. You'll be amazed at how easily it comes together and yet, how sophisticated it looks. If you need a "happy place" project, this is it. Relax and enjoy the process.

The crocheted necklace is perfect for today's casual look. Lightweight, it travels easily. Best of all, a charming dangle adds just the right personalization or whimsy to your project and makes it fun to wear time after time.

Most students will complete the project and wear it home. I find bead crochet participants often commit to make two or three more necklaces, so I always have additional kits available. (Yes, be warned, this class can be addicting.)
