Diane Cook | Tarnished Links | Friday, February 2nd, 2018 | 6 pm – 9 pm


Hand built links are a beautiful ending to an amazing hand built focal.  I will demo a handful of options you can easily add to any of the projects I will be teaching this weekend, Tarnished Trio, The Rustic Bezel, or The Waymaker.   These links can also be made into adorable bracelets and earrings.  You’ll love making these babies.  I do!
