The team from Artbeads came to Port Townsend last month to take a class with me. Here are some of the finished bracelets they made. Pretty amazing don’t you think! All in one day we covered over 7 different techniques!
Here are the techniques used for the various charms on these bracelets! You can watch the videos we’ve done with Artbeads to learn how!
