• LPDstudios Blog: Behind the Scenes: Craft on Tap- Pearl and Leather Jewelry

    I can't wait for my next Craft on Tap class which is being held on April 19, 2018 at the Lancaster Guild of Craftsmen.  I just love teaching at this facility because I am surrounded by amazing artwork, jewelry and pottery by incredible artist that are living and working in Pennsylvania. 
    The latest workshop is perfect for Springtime, who doesn't love a new piece of jewelry to kick off a season.   We are going to be creating a pair of Pearl and Leather Earrings and Bracelet.  This project is super easy and no skill level is required. One of the first tasks I had to do is prepare the pearls.  I needed to widen the drill holes to accept the leather cord.

     Here I am drilling the pearls, I never thought pearls could be so dirty.

    Getting Started
    Sometimes your intended design doesn't turn as planned, back to the drawing board with the earrings.
