Jamestown, NY – You don’t need previous experience to learn to make an eye-catching dragonfly pendant from beautiful glass beads.
On Saturday, July 19, the Audubon Center and Sanctuary is offering “Flight of the Dragonfly.”
At the 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m. workshop, you can make a colorful pendant in the shape of a dragonfly using Swarovski crystals, seed beads, glass “dagger” beads for the wings, and tiny metal spacers between the crystals.
Beadwork artist and teacher Anne Jackson will instruct you in making this charming piece of jewelry that you will be proud to wear or give as a special gift. A member of the Chautauqua County Society of Artists, Jackson teaches beading privately and also at Imagine in Bemus Point, New York.
As a bonus, Audubon Program Director Jennifer Schlick will give a short presentation about local dragonflies.
Cost of the class is $50, $42 for Friends of the Nature Center, and includes all supplies.
