18C272A - Wire and Bead Sun Catchers

18C272A - Wire and Bead Sun Catchers18C272A - Wire and Bead Sun Catchers

As a bead and tiny glass lover, what better way to view and admire them than with the sun kissing them every day in your window! It doesn’t get better than that.

In this class we will create a Sun Catcher using several different gauges and colors of wire from Parawire®. We will begin by creating a basic wire form. You will choose the size that feels comfortable and we will build upon it. Then we will lay out ideas on where color, shape, size and sparkle would work best. We will talk about design and balance to get a structured piece that has a random flow and beautiful bead embellishment.

Feel free to bring bead soup and charms you might want to use to personalize your own Sun Catcher. You will complete at least one full Sun Catcher, and there may be time for more.

Materials fee includes: Parawire® 24 ga Copper sheeting and 20-22 ga wire, Ultra-suede, Vintaj® chain, jumprings, findings, charms and rivets. Czech glass, crystals, pearls and beads for charms. Instructions and step-by-step photos or diagrams.

Level: Novice and above

Student Supply List:
Task light if needed, pen-paper. All other tools will be supplied in class. Optional: I will have lots of little beads and charms for you in class but you can bring your own charms and beads to add to your Sun Catcher to completely personalize it too you if you like.

Tuition $110
Materials Fee $40
