We pleased to announce that Meri Roo Garrett-Perez of Fire and
Sand Studio will be our featured guest!

Meri Roo will give us a demo of her lampwork technique and will also
have a trunk show where you can purchase one of her artist beads

There will also be a make-and-take project using a bead you
purchase from Meri Roo or one you already have.
From Meri Roo:

Glass beads are beautiful, we all love them, but how to incorporate them
into our work sometimes proves to be a challenge. Join us Tuesday as we
explore various ways to utilize lamp work beads!

Learn simple connections, to more ornate wire wrapping, while using craft
wire (preferably not coated) and those random leftover crystals and bead
soup stashes

What to bring:
•Wire 26 gauge
        20 gauge
        16-18 gauge
            (or something sturdy but also manageable)
•Headpins (to make dangles)
•Random beads, crystals, charms... whatever you like.
•Pliers: flat, chainnose, flush cutter
•Seed beads - sizes 11,8,6
•5" or more of chain
•Beadmat

I have beadmats, chain, wire, random beads, etc. I'm happy to share.
