Craft Night: Necklace Class

Last week we held our first Craft Night in our new studio. I was excited to see how it would all work in the new space. I taught the first class on how to make beads from materials found at the hardware store (like hardwoods and brass and copper pipes.) It was a super fun group of people and we had so much fun making necklaces. At the beginning of class we did introductions and I showed everyone my favorite features of Bing. I love the image search so we looked for color inspiration online and then got to work painting our beads. (ps: the travel search is the BEST.)  A huge thank you to all of the sponsors who donated items to our goodie bags! They were awesome (see below.)

We served creme brulee from The Creme Brulee Cart during the event so everyone could snack while they crafted. It was SO good!

Projecteo sent over a bunch of their tiny Instagram projectors for all attendees! These things are super fun to play with – they project images from your Instagram feed onto the wall! They came with a reel of some of my favorite photos. But everyone also got a voucher to order a reel from their own Instagram feed.

Cute Tape supplied everyone with a roll of washi tape and an awesome camera dispenser. They’re the perfect desk accessory!


Chronicle Books sent us these Polaroid Love Notes. All of the images on the cards are so beautiful.  They’re almost too pretty to give away (I might keep them all for myself!)


And Meri Meri (one of my long-term sponsors) gave each attendee their Toot Sweet Aqua Striped Napkins & Plates. I love that these look like circus tents! They’re perfect for any special occasion.


We’d like to say a huge thank you for everyone who attended – and to all of our wonderful sponsors! I’ll be sharing more about our screenprinting event later next week. We’re also hoping to announce more upcoming craft nights soon. So stay tuned!!

    Do you have any pictures of the finished products? Or are you posting a tutorial in the near future? Loved the look of the beads as they were painted. Can’t wait to see them on a necklace.

    Oh these look so wonderful!

    I’ll be in the bay area for 2 months of this year so I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed that a class will line up during a time I’m around! Next to start collecting good luck charms I think! ^_^
