Embellished Copper Washer Bracelet Workshop Tomorrow

Don't miss tomorrow's workshop at Monica's Quilt & Bead Creations in Palm Desert!
I'm teaching a truly unique bracelet, my own original design, a linked bracelet like you've never seen. First we'll use various hammers to add textures to copper washers (Harbor Freight). Next, we'll learn a variety of ways to add wire-wrapped embellishments and beads to our washers.
I'll show you how to make figure-8 links to attach your components for making a very beautiful bracelet (or a short necklace, your choice).
Finally, we'll make our own toggle clasp. Super fun, and easy (for the most part) with some challenging bits. But I think you're up for it!
Time permitting, we'll also use liver of sulfur to artificially age our bracelets and polish them, too. Hope to see you there.
