Hi folks,

I hope the beginning of summer is finding you well. Our next project is Yo Yo bead earrings, these beads do not have a drill hole so turning these beads into jewelry requires a different technique than you've seen in previous meetings.

There are a limited number of Yo Yo beads supplied by the Bead Society for Members attending the meeting. If you have not already reserved your beads, you need to contact Ann Hochman ASAP. The meeting is only two weeks away so don't delay!
