This past Friday, I was able to take the beginning wirework class, Wirework 101, at Quiltworks Northwest, which is not just a quilt shop, but also contains a bead shop and is also my local Bernina dealer. I tried working in copper and bronze and found these beads in their shop. The tag says Howlite Mosaic Magnesite, and I thought they were the most beautiful beads! I managed to finish making this bracelet before I left:
I've still got a lot to learn, but loved the class, and have a new bracelet to wear!
