Free form bracelets use multiple cords and a variety of beads to create a casual bracelet. These bracelets are simple to make and the perfect gift for any age. Students will learn about appropriate cord and beads for this type project as well as the process involved in completing bracelets. Each student will create two bracelets that can be worn together or separately. Additional bracelet kits will be available to purchase at a reduced rate.
Bracelets of this type are a good way to recycle broken jewelry, or to use up random beads left from other projects.
ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: KAY VANDERVORT says, “As children we could get out of doing dishes if we read. We read a lot. And, we could watch television if we had a project we were working on while we watched. Hence, all my life I have gotten into the habit of having a lap project—jewelry making, embroidery, sewing, or experimenting with a variety of artistic medium.”
Kay has a degree in secondary education and taught both in high school and technical college before moving to a career in not-for-profit management. She has facilitated trainings at both regional and statewide conferences on topics related to non-profit marketing, volunteer management, and volunteer recruitment and screening. She has taught several jewelry and polymer clay classes in the past at the Ely Folk School.
