Well it is that time of year, and I have nineteen classes available at Joggles.com! I have seven new classes and twelve returning favorites. Here is the line-up:
Funky Junky Steampunky 3 lessons/$32.00 beginning on May 23, 2013.
R U a punk? Steampunk art reflects a fictional steam-mechanized Victorian era, combining metal gears with ruffles and lace. I have combined both of these qualities in the bracelets and pins offered here, adding in buttons, charms and other fun things. The woven ribbon bracelet has a few ribbonwork flowers, leaves and trims worked onto the surface. And then it is all about the layering; weaving and layering trims, layering ribbons over zipper tape, layering buttons over buttons, layering charms over everything, and don’t forget the BLING! With your leftover bits you can make a brooch to wear with your bracelet. Bring your imagination and join me on the journey!
Steampunk Roses 3 lessons/$32.00 beginning June 11, 2013
Roses and Rosettes, lace and ribbon, bling, charms and buttons all come together to create a variety of lovely body adornments. The base of the necklace and brooch are interchangeable. The necklace rose has ribbons layered in a rosette pattern; the brooch rose has a lace rosette with layers of ribbon petals. The center of either can be a button or the small rose bud that is also featured on the bracelet. The necklace can be a single rose as shown with small flowers growing up the cord, or can have several roses stitched to a wide ribbon for a choker.
New Fangled Dangle 2 lessons/$22.00 beginning June 27, 2013
This bracelet reminds me of the charm bracelet my Grandmother gave me for my 10th birthday. The base row of large beads can also include buttons and then is adorned with charms and additional beads. All of the beads can be different, similar or even the same, and it will still look beautiful. This is the perfect piece of jewelry for any wardrobe, or to give as a gift for that special friend.
Bohemian Button Bracelet 2 lessons/$24.00 beginning on July 16, 2013
There are three different styles to choose from, one using all shank buttons, the other using all sew-thru buttons, the third using a combination of discs, shank buttons and ribbons. As a bonus I will also include a short description of the different types of vintage button materials, a cleaning guide, and a description of the different button backings.
Madelaine’s Choker 2 lessons/$25.00 beginning on July 30, 2013
Everyone loves this piece, both in the making and the wearing. The style is timeless, and the possibilities for design endless. This necklace starts with a two-needle right angle ladder stitched base. Once the base is complete one needle sets off to create the dangles, which can be freshwater pearls, glass beads or vintage glass treasures, while the other needle adds a finished edge to the top of the necklace. A beautiful button or bead can be used for the closure. The dangles and embellishments can be simple and elegant or encrusted and fantastic.
Tandleton Rose Bracelet 2 lessons/$24.00 beginning on August 13, 2013
Each little beauty is made from a piece of bias ribbon that is first stitched and stuffed into a pillow shape. Each of these individual pillows is then embroidered with silk ribbon and embroidery threads, creating a rose, leaves and a vine.
You have two styles of bracelet to choose from.
Gingerbread Details and Decorative Trims 2 lessons/$30.00 beginning on August 27, 2013
Girls of all ages love ribbon, trims and frills, and these 28 trims gathered here would be no exception. Many of these edgings and trims use vintage techniques turning ordinary ribbon into detailed extraordinary couture trims. The simple techniques that are used to create these decorations range from folded, braided, wrapped and sewn. These trims can be used to turn thrift store clothing into couture, transform pieced CQ work above and beyond, and mixed media projects into fabulous works of art.
