Bridgette and the other employee at the school were our consultants and experts on putting our projects together. We sat at a big table in the store and worked on bead mats.
Here are Roberta and Toni hard at work. (Isn't that a stunning beaded piece Roberta is wearing? She added the beads to a piece of felt.)
I went through my jewelry drawer and pulled out all my beaded necklaces that were broken in some way. Some were missing clasps, or needed jump rings or crimping. I spent most of my time re-stringing the necklace on the right, that had completely come apart and was missing some beads. The store staff fixed everything else for very minimal fees, between $1.00 and $3.00 per necklace.
