Thank you everyone who attended our last meeting!

The wire bead crochet taught by Brenda turned out to be a highly rewarding project. Even those of us "crochet impaired" folks were well on our way before the end of the meeting.

Thanks again Brenda and everyone who assisted in the class.

Our next project is the Beaded Rivoli

Rivolis are beautiful crystal shapes without holes (look at the attached pictures). This project will allow your rivoli to be used as a pendant while still allowing the light to shine through.
