Me with Jelcy Romberg showing off our necklaces and bracelets
Necklace I made- it was an AWESOME class. Jelcy taught us how to make a stunning necklace from a strand of beads, a few strands of colored pearls and fibers. This looks so difficult but it was really easy- especially for me the beginner- can definitely see making this again. Thinking of the really frilly fibers for some added texture. Maybe even some silk or wool?
Dallas Bead Market- it was really busy but waited for it to clear out some so I could take photos.
Beads, shells, pearls, rings, books, fibers...oooh my!
The Dallas Bead Market 2008 was too much fun! My first time at any bead market and first time to taking beading/jewelry classes. Jelcy Romberg was brave enough to have me in two of her classes. The first class we made the necklace shown above- LOVED it! The second class we made a really fancy bracelet, still a work in progress for me- will be beautiful when done. Jelcy was a fantastic teacher, funny and patient! her website is www.jelcy.com
