International Teacher - Shelley Pleines (Nybakke) - To Be At Stony Creek Bead In November

We are SO EXCITED to announce that Shelley Pleines (formally Shelley Nybakke) is coming to teach at Stony Creek Bead!!! She will be here November 22-24, 2013. 

Shelley requires that students have a good working knowledge of Right Angle Weave before coming to these classes.  If you do not yet know RAW, sign up for either a private lesson or one of our introductory classes so you will feel confident and comfortable in her classes:  Reality Bracelet – October 1, or Hammertone – October 24 (more to come on those).

Since Shelley is coming from out-of state, we will not give any refund for cancellations unless we can fill your spot from the wait list.  Thank you for your understanding.  Registration is now open.  Space is already limited.  734.544.0904.

Steamy Windows     
Friday, November 22   5-8 PM       
This one reminded me of Stained Glass Windows.  But that is sort of a boring name for me and has probably been used numerous times already.  So Steamy Windows it is.  That name reminds me of my high school days and steamy times in a Chevy Super Sport.  And of course no one describes Steamy Windows better than Tina Turner.  Layered Right Angle Weave. Both the perfect necklace and bracelet.

Slow Hand                   
Saturday, November 23         10-4  
Because I have always loved the song by  the Pointer Sisters, (yes I am old), because I didn't get this sample done in time for the Bead & Button Show, and because somehow I got very very lucky and ended up with my very own man with a slow hand.  Actually two slow hands!  Right Angle Weave with 8/0s and 11/0s and a splash of 15/0s.  Hidden snap clasp.  Basic knowledge of RAW is all that is required.  You can embellish any way you want.  All pearls, all crystals, firepolish.... You can make it wide or skinny.  You can do anything you want!  Except of course steal my man with the slow hand. 

Veronica’s Vision
Sunday, November 24  10-4  
My wonderful friend from Sweden, Veronica Velong, actually was the first to make this desig and it is amazing to think about the people and places I have been lucky enough to come to know ALL BECAUSE OF MY LOVE OF BEADING.  If I can pass that along to just a few people, then I'm a happy happy happy girl.
n based on my layered right angle weave technique.  I adored it from the minute I saw it.  She has given me permission to teach her wonderful creation.  I feel very lucky to know Veronica

Save the Date!

On September 14, 2013, we will  host a show for Glass Act.
Glass Act, also known as the Southeastern Michigan Glass Beadmakers Guild, is based in Michigan,  but they have members from around the world.
Each of the participating artists will bring in several trays filled with their work, so, unlike our regular shows that feature one artist, this show will feature many artists and their different styles. 
It's sure to be a great show, so mark it on your calendar!
