Earrings, Earrings, Earrings!
I gave my first earring making class tonight and it went really well. It had a good turnout with 6 people. Everyone enjoyed being able to choose their own beads. Learning to make wire wrapped loops for the first time can be tough but everyone managed to bang out 3 or 4 pairs.
As for myself I really liked teaching. It gets easier every time I do it. I'm learning to break each task down into steps and to be more clear with my instructions. I like helping each person figure out what went wrong and how to fix it and love that moment when they first do it right. It's interesting to me how different the designs other people make using the same beads I use.
Everyone was excited to take more beading classes. I'm going to set up the April schedule soon. For more information visit: Crafty Like a Fox
