You know my favorite bead store is Elusis Beads in Okotoks, just outside Calgary. And now they're stocking a really great line of interchangeables called Kameleon. Buy a ring and you can choose from a wide selection of inserts that simply pop in - and out again when you feel like a change. Who needs Gucci?
They're also starting up classes soon (see list below) including a couple I'll be attending myself, and one I'll be teaching, the Tuxedo bracelet (scroll down to see a photo of it).
Not just beading classes either, but wire wrapping classes and chain maille classes too. Plus the fees are very reasonable indeed. Oh, happy day! You can contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to be kept updated on additional classes.
They'll be showing off samples of the items you can learn to make over the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned and....... bead on!
