New Webinar: Making Necklaces from Found Objects with Kristen Robinson
Exciting news! Our friends at Jewelry Making Daily's sister site, Cloth Paper Scissors, have invited us to join them for a fun new webinar. In Making Necklaces from Found Objects, jewelry artist Kristen Robinson will be sharing a tutorial on how to make necklaces from your found object treasures, live on Friday, June 28, 2013, from 2-3 pm ET (that's 1-2pm CT, 12noon-1pm MT, 11am-12noon PT).
Don't worry if you can't make it live–with your registration, you'll receive an email after the event that tells you how you can view a complete recording of the webinar and Q&A session within about 48 business hours after the webinar. Everyone who registers will also receive a special discount code for the Interweave store!
Finally, learn a pro's secrets for how to give your found treasures the new life they deserve in gorgeous and meaningful jewelry! On my desk I have a small box of beloved bits I've collected through the years–mother-of-pearl buckles, orphaned rhinestone earrings, seed pods with intricate details, shells and rocks full of nature's glory, silverware and hardware pieces, even some whats-its that are just beautiful unknowns–but I've never made jewelry with them because they're just too lovely to part with. But now I've got the perfect chance to turn them into keepsake jewelry, because Kristen is going to share mold-making techniques so I can use and reuse my favorite found objects in jewelry art.
