Good River Gallery is doing a whole slew of beady classes and events in Columbus Ohio in early December. Photos and details are available through the links below. I’m not sure, when this entry uploads to Facebook, that the photos will show up.

December 5th – Glass Axis – Day
Using Beadmaking Molds
With all the wonderful molds and presses currently available on the market, its time to try some of them out. We’ll have a bunch for you to try and talk about their care and feeding. If you have one you’re stuck on, then bring it and we’ll try to make it work for you. Taught on minor bench burners.
For more information, call Heidi at Glass Axis 614-291-4250.

December 7th – 1 Stop Bead Shop – Day (3 hours)
Steampunk Pendant, day – Level 4.
This started out as something else, but has since turned into a bug, with a key. I don’t know, but its fun, and uses a peyote stitch base, Swarovski sequins and fringe. And its purple!

December 7 – 1 Stop Bead Shop- Evening (3 hours)
Japanese Screen Bracelet
Level 2 or 3.
This lovely bracelet uses a basic bead weaving stitch called “peyote” and some very basic wirework. Its a great beginning project for the seed beader. For our friends who already know basic peyote, we will
also cover “fast peyote” in class, which does two rows at the same time!

December 8th – 1 Stop Bead Shop – Embellished Netted Necklace – Day (3 hours)
Level 2
More information coming soon.

December 8 – 1 Stop Bead Shop- Evening (3 hours)
Fringes Workshop
Level 2
This class covers 8 different types of fringe. I’ve heard that my fringe is very distinctive, so I’ll give exact patterns for each. The in-store sample is a finished necklace which uses 4 of those fringes. We will not be making a necklace in class, but you’ll come home with a handy booklet with

attached samples.

December 9 – 1 Stop Bead Shop – Evening (3.5 hours)
Sea Form Pendant
Level 4
Make a sculpted peyote pendant or beaded bead around a lampwork glass bead and cover it in crazy fringe! Students should already know flat even count peyote stitch.

December 10 – 1 Stop Bead Shop – Evening (3.5 hours)
Royal Ruffles Bracelet
Level 3
This bracelet looks more complex than it actually is. Use either one of our Czech glass buttons as a closure, or make a beaded toggle clasp, also covered in class. Students should be very comfortable with even count peyote.


December 4 – Meet the Artists Event at 1 Stop! I actually won’t be there since I fly in that night, but you can meet my stuff, as well as the work of the other 1 Stop Artists! Free – come on by!

December 5 – JMAG (Jewelry and Metal Arts Guild of Ohio) demo and meeting at Glass Axis. I’m going to try to make a dragon pendant! Free – come on by!

December 7-12 Trunk Show at 1 Stop Bead Shop. Kits, tutorials and lampwork bead goodies

December 11th – Club Bead at 1 Stop Bead Shop. And… I’ll have my lampwork there!
