Every year, the Bead & Button Show is put on in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Milwaukee is only an hour away from Jefferson, Wisconsin, where Cool Tools is located. Classes are offered at the Bead & Button Show with a huge variety of techniques and skill levels. Rhonda and Dianne, employees of Cool Tools took some classes to keep up their knowledge in the jewelry artist world. Each teacher was wonderful to work with and an inspiration to learn from.
Classes included (from the first to last picture):
Backyard Birdhouse in Silver Clay with Lyle Rayfield
Aphrodite Pendant with Kaska & Katherine Firor
Kiln-Fired Enamel Earrings with Sherie Gage
Spinner Ring with Robyn Corelius
We both learned a great deal of technique and instruction at these classes and can’t wait to take more next year!
