Altered Domino Necklaces...

....workshop
Saturday, February 21st
time: 11:30-1:30
cost: $20.00

Our altered domino necklace workshop is fast approaching.
Our workshop sample is just the tip of the iceberg as to what one 
can do in crafting unique altered domino pieces. 
(and yes, it's another, "you can't make just one" kind of project!!) 

I found these beautiful and creative inspiration pieces on Pinterest...
take a peek at these super fun ideas...

how about celebrating a special location...a birthplace, a favorite vacation getaway 
where you went to school or maybe where you met that someone special.

Thank you Pinterest and all the artists who share their work here!

Notes for our upcoming workshop:
1) please bring jewelery pliers and wire cutters (if you have them).
2) bring any favorite charms you may want to include
3) be prepared to contain your desire to make one for everyone you know!

See you Saturday!!
