Beaducation Academy = GOOD TIMES!

For years we have been talking about hosting live classes again. Well, it finally happened! The much anticipated Beaducation Academy classes were held on March 16-17, and boy did we have fun!

On Saturday we had two classrooms going. In one classroom, we taught two half-day classes: Spiro Pendant (taught by me) and Rivet It, taught by Aisha Formanski and me. In the other classroom, Joe and Anat Silvera were teaching a full-day Introduction to Soldering class. On Sunday, Aisha and I taught an all-day Metalworking Workshop class. Two days packed with learning!

Gorgeous finished pieces!

Throughout the weekend, folks learned riveting, texturing, stamping, wire weaving, soldering and sawing! Many of our students looked at this as an event, bringing sisters, friends, and bead buddies. One gal traveled all the way from Kansas!

This was a super fun weekend for us as instructors. Thanks to all the wonderful students who came out to join us. It was so great to have your talent and enthusiasm filling our office!

Until next time...
