Spring has definitely sprung here in Albuquerque, and the members of the Bead Society have been busy!
The end of March brought BeadFest to Santa Fe once again. Everyone had a blast taking classes and (of course) buying beads at the expo. Below is a lantern made by one of our members during a metalworking and enameling class with instructor Steven James:
A few of our members also taught classes at BeadFest this year! Kenny Halstead and Margo Yee taught their fabulous beaded bird class:
On March 29th, the talented Susan Lenart Kazmer taught a class all about different techniques for using resin in jewelry making. Our members really enjoyed themselves!
We also learned how to make this beautiful beaded rope with Kenny Halstead during the April Bead Time.
Last but not least, we spent our March meeting making memory wire bracelets that will be sold to benefit Susan's Legacy at the 2017 Fiber Arts Fiesta.
