The Madison Bead Show was last weekend and of course, I had to take a couple of classes.

Saturday my class was with Jackie Lincoln of
Long Canyon Jewelry. Jackie has a great ability to teach chainmaille so that even a left-handed person can understand it – I’m always the slowest one in the class unless there is another left-handed person and even then I’m generally behind.

This class was for making earrings and sure enough on the first one I was behind. I was still trying to get my first 3 rings together while everyone else was on rings 9,10 and 11. But I got it!!

Here’s a picture – not the best but it is a difficult earring to photograph. It cannot be laid down to photograph so….
After the grueling class I headed downstairs to take a look at all the goodies – and of course, I purchased a few things that were calling my name. I’ll talk about those at a later date – when I actually use the products!!
