Come join me in taking shrink plastic to a new level. We will bend it, ruffle it, drill it and then turn it into a beads. These will be used in creating wire-wrapped dangles along with metal findings and smaller glass beads. The result is a finished dangle that resembles a bell flower.
We will create 10-12 to shrink plastic bell flower dangles and also twisted, curled leaf shapes.
All will be added to a bracelet blank along with garden themed charms to create a light-weight chunky bracelet. Design will be stressed using size, pattern and texture in a pleasing manner. If you have never wire wrapped before you will learn to do so in this class. 10 pre-wire-wrapped simple beaded dangles will be in your kits for you to use along with the shrink plastic dangles you make in class.

Special Notes or requirements: You may want to bring you own set of pliers to this class- Round Nose , Chain nose and Wire Clippers . How ever plier set will be provided.
