September 2010 Meeting - Hollow Beads

Hi Fellow Clayers! It’s meeting time again! Our next meeting is this Saturday, Sept. 11, 2010 at 1:30-4:30 (please take note , we are now starting to meet at 1:30, not 1:00) at the Hobby Lobby on I-35 and South 19th in Moore (2650 Service Road, Moore, OK 73160 - see map)

We will be making 2 kinds of Hollow Beads - pillow and puff, led by Jane Linn. These beads make great charms, pendants, and beads for bracelets and necklaces. They are especially fun because they can be be big and bold, without the weight of traditional beads.
