Ever wanted to learn the A-B-C's of jewelry-making, but don't quite know where to start?  How about creating a well-made knotted necklace that is both functional and beautiful? No fears, my friends. We have you covered in our Intro to Beading workshop where we'll make three beautiful semi-precious stone bracelets that you will want to wear every single day. 

In this class, you will first choose beads that will allow you to set your intention. We'll then learn proper technique on how to string those beads, and add essential oil to diffuser beads to provide even more healing energy.  Like our popular Mala necklace workshop, each person will go home with 3 bracelets that equal to 108 beads (a harmonious number).  A little cording, a pair of pliers, and a little time, and you'll have a a stack of bracelets you're going to absolutely love to wear. 

You will start the process by choosing 108 gemstone beads with which you will create your Mala necklace.  For fun, we'll then go into creating a tassel by hand (no fears... we'll also have plenty of colorful tassels on-hand from which you can choose to create your final necklace). After a little tassel fun, we'll then take the remainder of the time to bead our necklaces.  

Not familiar with the Mala bead necklace or intention beads?  Aside from being a fashion staple for many women, they are also known as Yoga Beads or Japa Mala. Mala necklaces are used to enhance ones spiritual connectivity and is often used during meditation or mantra recitation in yoga.  We'll have a wide variety of gemstones on hand with a handout that goes over what each stone means. You'll be able to choose from a wide variety including obsidian, agates, jaspers, quartz, chalcedony and much more.  The beauty is the choice is yours. 

For the course, we will provide all tools and supplies.  Our beads will be 8mm - 10mm in size. If you have special beads you'd like to use, be sure to bring them with you for your creation. 

Each class is a 2 hour session
