Bracelet class


About this design:

Last night I did my second class at the library. I designed this bracelet myself and figured it was easy enough for beginners. Everything went well, all of the students bought a second kit. This is the first time I have taught crimping and boy was it a challenge. First of all the fact the the crimp tube and crimper are so small they had a hard time seeing it. The bracelets are made with tubing that I cut when they picked out the color. I figured I would waste less if I cut to order well............for some reason I cut them too long!! Everyone's bracelet was too big and we had to start over. I played it off like it was common to measure wrong lol. Either was they seemed happy and after all that they each bought a second kit.

    Perfect beginners project. It is great to know that the students enjoyed doing it. Personally I think learning the technique is the most important part especially if it encourages them to do more.
