This past Tuesday evening was Techniques Night at the Alaska Bead Society meeting. Each time we have a techniques night, there are several tables set up with volunteer demonstrators. Members can select which techniques they would like to learn. I was asked to be one of the demonstrators and I agreed. I've done this before and really enjoyed it.
I taught several members how to make their own sterling silver earwires. Everyone had their own tools, but I supplied the materials, hammer, bench block and Dremel.
This is the first session. Left to right: Kim, me, Linda and Stetson.
During the next session, we did a different style of earwire. Left to right: Linda (hands only), Stetson, JoEllen, Kim, me.
We had some overlap in our sessions, so everyone could make both styles. All in all, it was a really fun evening. Especially when Julie came by with a bucket of those delicious bite-sized cream puffs!
