DIY Hummingbird Feeder Fun!

Great fun!

WOW! What a great time we had today at our first ever hummingbird feeder workshop! Everyone left with a smile and their own feeder; armed with new knowledge of hummingbird migration and behavior, ready to enjoy countless entertaining hours watching the hummingbirds at the feeders plus the added benefit of reduced insect population.

Thanks to all that came out and made this such a great success! Enjoy!

Jewelry Making Class!

Clay Raven Focal, Kyanite, Leopardskin Jasper,
Sterling, Copper and Leather Cord, Copper Spacers and
a large Copper Puff Bead and Knotted Closure

I am SO EXCITED about our first Jewelry Class this Saturday!  I am hoping to see friends and lots of new faces to explore some of the behind the scenes information of making jewelry.  This will be a “wire-wrap” class.  Since this is a beginners class, we will be going over a lot of things, training if you will, of things to know to make things easier.  Such as:
Tools – Discussion of all the different tools’ names, uses and differences.
Beads – We will talk about bead sizes and drilled holes and how they have a part in determining wire gauges used in your design.  Sometimes that wire you have in mind using just will NOT fit through the bead hole…back to the drawing board!
Wire – gauges and tempers and their impact on your design
Alternatives to wire – chain, leather cord, waxed cord
Miscellaneous components – bead caps, spacers, etc.
Discussion of various types of jewelry construction
