Class: Exotic Bali Ha'i Bracelet, 12:45pm-6:00pm
Feb 2-8, 2019 I will be teaching a variety of Traditional Wire Jewelry Classes at The Tucson Bead Show, location: Casino Del Sol, 5655 West Valencia Rd, Tucson, AZ in Classroom 1. Classes are limited to 10 seats. Register early!
The name Bali Ha’i often brings to mind the myth of an exotic and mystical island, barely visible on the distant horizon. Located in the South Pacific Ocean, the actual island of Bali is home to some of the most unique silversmiths in the world. Each student will create their own exotic bracelet by using their chosen combination of sterling silver and 14k gold-filled wires, and then discover how to enhance the design with handcrafted 20k vermeil and/or Bali silver beads. Skills taught include Dale’s famous wire-wrapping mantra, how to properly straighten and bundle wires, making a hook & eye clasp, and much more.
The $150.00 class fee includes all necessary silver and 14kgf wires, Bali silver and vermeil beads, use of instructor’s tools in class and written follow-up instructions.
Special Notes or requirements: Instructor will have tools for everyone to use in class, or you may bring your own: flat, chain and round nose pliers; wire cutters; foot long ruler; pin vise; ultra fine marker; fabric tape measure. Please bring your camera, a notebook and pen, and if needed- eye magnification. Cancellation policy: no refunds will be given after January 5, 2019.
