Hi, I'm the Bead Chick!

Beyond August…classes at the bead chick

Hi everyone! By now you know that school has started up again for St. John’s County, and I’m one of about 200 bus drivers getting 40,000 kids to and from school every day. It’s been an adjustment, but I still love to play and teach in the studio!

If you are not familiar with the bead chick studio, well I like to make anything and everything. I specialize in polymer clay art, beads and jewelry. So if that appeals to you, send me an email pegsrugs@yahoo.com , call or text me at 904-466-3160 , and we’ll make a date for a class!

We also host a guild meeting each month for polymer clay on the 3rd Saturday of each month from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. A great group of enthusiasts share ideas, techniques, projects and our favorite “show and tell.” It’s called “First Coast Polymer Clayers’ Guild” and we also support UF Shands Proton Therapy Institute with donations of excess art materials.

Other media I love to teach are:
Torch fired enamels
Resin art
Mixed media
Metal work
Silver smithing
Pearl knotting
Cold connections
Mosaics

So if you want to learn to do something close to what’s on the list above, give me a call or send me an email and we’ll get a date on the calendar. I’ll be limited mostly to Saturdays for classes until Christmas break, but late Wednesday afternoons might be an option too.

Kim Williams also teaches bead weaving on Friday afternoons at the studio. I’ll try to get her schedule to show up on the schedule page for you. If it’s not there, email me and I’ll send you a copy.
