I just spent the last three days at Beadazzles a bead store here in Atlanta taking classes with Marcia DeCoster. This is one of the components for the Urchin lariet. It was great fun. I also took her free-form bracelet. Marcia is an incredibly creative bead designer. Her designs are unique and her teaching inspiring! She is coming back next year and I can't wait! Take a look at her website www.marciadecoster.com.
Also in the class was one of my favorite people, Annie Hess. I met Annie a few years ago when I took her doll class, Twisted Sister. The great news is that Alice at Beadazzles is having her back to teach a mixed media necklace in October of this year. I will try to get a picture posted soon. I STRONGLY recommend this class, it will be wonderful!
