Lace Jewelry by Lorine Mason
Identifying specific design elements within lace yardage is the first step in the creation of a one of kind jewelry piece. This is followed by the careful dissection of the lace to create jewelry pieces through layering techniques. Preparing the lace and adding color is the next step. Finally the lace elements are accessorized through the addition of chain, ribbon, beads, charms and more. Students will have the opportunity to create more than one piece of jewelry in class; items such as earrings, bracelets and necklaces. The instructor will supply a variety of laces to choose from as well as an assortment of jewelry findings, embellishments, paint and other items necessary with the exception of supplies listed below.
