Our April Designer Showcase will be held April 5th -16th, featuring polymer clay beads and jewelry by The Spirited Bead & Klew's Gallery. Polymer clay artist, Karen Lewis (aka: Klew) is well know for her innovative bead designs. Polymer clay is a durable plastic clay with which Klew masterfully creates fine art. "I create with my Heart and Spirit, and am largely influenced by Egyptian, Asian, Tribal & Shamanic Art. My pieces are infused with my love for Life. With every piece I create it is my desire to pass on the passion I feel through its creation, and wish each person Peace, Love and Harmony."
Join us on April 19th to make a great gift idea for Mother's Day - Birthstone Bangle Bracelet. Make a bracelet for Mom with crystal pave beads in birthstone colors. Mix and match with Crystallett buttons and charms to create a unique custom gift. Price starts at $3.50 and varies depending on pieces selected. The workshop is free and runs from 11 am until 2 pm. Pre-registration is not required - just stop in!
Private classes have become increasingly popular, as have our monthly Design du Jour Workshops, so we're trying something new this fall. Instead of offering our formal class schedule for September through November, we're giving you more flexible options. Choose from our extensive list of classes with many different instructors.
