Began to strengthen the familial bond of the three sisters at the helm, poco creations & beads fortifies budding jewelers with expert instruction and crafting supplies. In the Basic Wire Wrap class, students smith a gemstone pendant by choosing $10 worth of beads from an extensive, globe-trotting selection of semi-precious stone, fresh-water pearl, and bone beads such as agate ($8), mother of pearl ($5), or fossilized triceratops horn. After learning the basics of wire gauge and looping, students grab a length of wire and apply newfound wrapping skills to their own pendant. Limited to seven students, small classes allow instructors to lavish one-on-one tutelage and develop a secret handshake with each student.
Alternatively, the five-piece toolset fortifies hobbyists with the following implements: crimping pliers, side cutters, nylon jaw pliers, flat-nose pliers, and round-nose pliers. To bolster DIY creations, toolset buyers also receive 10% off an in-store purchase.
