Birthday Beading

Today was sort of a revival of my birthday. Today was the beading class that Gershon bought for me as a birthday gift. And today I finally opened up the beading-board that Micah gave me for my birthday.  It was a glorious experience!

I love taking beading classes, but I don't take them very often because they're expensive! So now I've figured out that they are a good thing to request as a gift!

Today's class was held at Village Beads,

and taught by Virginia Blakelock.

Virginia's projects tend to be very complex and detailed. This one looks deceptively simpler than it actually is.  It's called Serpentina Bracelet.  I made pretty good progress during the class, and will add a picture here when it's finished.  

Here's the publicity pic of it:

There were only five students in the class, so it was a cozy group, with lots of personal attention from the instructor. Village Bead has a lovely atmosphere for classes, because the class table is right out in the showroom, not tucked away in a back room. 
All in all, it was a wonderful day.

(And then in the evening, our Couples Mah Jongg group got together to play Mah Jongg and celebrate PI Day.  Yum!)
