Pics from the amazing two day of classes in Redondo Beach at "The Mandrel". Claudia Trimbur-Pagel was the instructor and these are her beads. Wish I could say they are mine, but they are not. I will be practicing these techniques for sure. Claudia's beads are amazing.
Although I made the ring set up in ArtClay Silver, the bead was made by Claudia. I don't know quite how I maneuvered that but the ring is gorgeous and I'm happy it is in my care forever.
I purchased the two blue beads (one already a bracelet) and the other to make a matching pendant.
