Instructor: Jeannine M. Mankins
Jeannine has been teaching beading and wire classes for the better part of 16 years in Sacramento, California and in the surrounding area bead stores. Jeannine has also been fortunate enough to teach at Bead Fest Philadelphia, Arlington, Tacoma, Santa Fe and the Bay Area Bead Extravaganza in Oakland, California. Jeannine has been a lifelong crafter, loves the creative process and inspiring others to find their way through it. “There is nothing more gratifying then handing several different people the same materials and instructions and see the different creations they come up with. I also love helping them through challenges that arise and watching them gain confidence in skills which may have created frustration previously. It's what drives me to create new designs and in turn, teach those designs to others.”

Currently not available.
