Folk School Class: Create a One-of-a-Kind Embroidered Bracelet

embroidered bracelet

Thursday, February 13, 2020
10:00 AM – 2:00 PM
Tuition: $40 Materials: $20

Learn the technique of bead embroidery while creating a one-of-a-kind bracelet. It is a fun and easy way to create interesting texture and color combinations for unique pieces of jewelry. It does not require following a specific pattern or counting beads or stitches, allowing for total creativity, combining color and texture in unique patterns. This technique is adaptable to other applications such as an embellishing clothing and making necklaces, book covers, or wall hangings. Participants will end up with one completed bracelet about one inch wide and will take home ideas for other projects.

About the instructor, Kay Vandervort: “Although I’ve never really thought of myself as an artist, I’ve had both visual art and one-of-a-kind jewelry items accepted in galleries in both Wisconsin and Michigan. My love of art began in my youth with a mother who did not believe idle hands were a good thing. Our choices were to create something, read, study, garden, or clean. I threw myself into everything except the cleaning part and found I love to experiment with color, texture, and random lines. I make jewelry because I like to wear it and would prefer to wear something of my own design.” Kay retired to Ely three years ago after a career as a freelance writer followed by thirty years as a nonprofit executive director. She is experienced in teaching both high school and adult education courses in communication. She has taught several jewelry and polymer clay classes in the past at the Ely Folk School.
