People from cultures worldwide have been adorning themselves with jewelry made from glass since Ancient civilization. It's no wonder there is no material that offers such a variety of color, pattern, and shine quite like glass.
Join jewelry maker Cebette Murphy at Local Speed as she teaches you how to continue this rich tradition by creating your own earrings from vintage glass beads. You will leave this workshop with two pairs of earrings. Keep one and give one as a special gift, or keep both as timeless additions to your wardrobe. Snacks and wine will be provided, and Cebette will bring along some of the creations she makes for local boutiques to inspire you.
