March thru May Workshops/Suspended

Below are workshop dates for the March, April and May.


We've added a few new classes for both beginner and intermediate levels, including classes for younger "beaders" including a Bookmark Workshop and Key Chain Workshop. We believe these will be a lot of fun.


Classes are currently on Saturdays and Sundays. If you have a group of up to 4 friends that would like to book a workshop,  on dates other than those listed, please contact Tracey at 703-838-5000.


We also offer birthday parties for boys and girls over 10 years of age, as well as Ladies' Night Out, and Bridal "Parties". Call 703-838-5000 for details.


In February we will begin offering classes in Making Your Own Wedding Jewelry, both for the bride and for her bridesmaids. Imagine wearing stunning jewelry on your special day that you made yourself. This is also a fun and special way to spend time with the special ladies in your life before the BIG day and come away with some amazing creations made by you.


Also, you may consider creating jewelry with your future mother-in-law or daughter-in-law. Private lessons are also available.
