Last week -- for the very first time -- I attended Bead Fest at the Valley Forge Convention Center in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania.
The first class I took was a resin course with Susan Lenart Kazmer of Objects and Elements. Resin is not new to me, but still, I learned some things about using resin that I didn't know before. Susan taught a lot of metal-working techniques too. She was a very generous teacher.
This triangular resin-paper cover will eventually have pages inside and will be a book. The idea was that it would be a book necklace, but I think mine is a bit large for that.
One of the (many) things I loved about this workshop was learning to rivet -- tube rivets and wire rivets -- and of course, the hinge.
