Beginner Kumihimo Class – Any Skill Level

This technique may be tricky to say but it’s so much fun to learn.  In this class you will be required to pick up certain supplies ahead of time so that you can be ready for class.  In class you will learn to braid with cord only and then with beads only.  Finishing techniques will also be covered.  Register online here.

Rivoli Earrings with Drops Class – Advanced Beginner Skill Level

These fun earrings will be offered in a few different color combinations.  Previous work with peyote stitch a plus for class.  Please bring needle, fireline, and magnifying glasses with you to class.  Register here online.


*NEW* Bead Weaving and Kumihimo Kit Debut
I’ve been tweaking a project for a new kit that will debut on Saturday, June 22, 2019.  This project is a combined kumihimo and bead weaving project and I would classify it as an intermediate project.  Stay tuned for more details.

Fused Fine Silver Necklace Class – All Skill Levels

The raves reviews on this piece led me to offer it as a class.  No previous knowledge of fusing is necessary to take this class.  I will show you how to shape, cut, and fuse different gauges of fine silver to create this piece.  Each person will have their own torch set up.  Please wear closed toe shoes, long hair tied back, and clothing with no ruffles or dangling pieces.  This class is limited to 4 students only and is currently full.  Call me at 413-782-0288 or email me at to be added to the wait list.
