Specialty Class Schedule

WIRE-WRAPPING with Daniel Morgan
  • Lacy Cuff Bracelet: Sunday, July 19, 1PM

A pretty, girly project, and we have a nice assortment of these fantastic focal clasps!

  • Pendant: Sunday, August 9, 1PM

Learn to wrap your favorite cabochon or bead with beautiful ornamental wire, to really show it off! YaYa Beads has a wide variety of cabs to choose from, or bring your own.

This is a great project for beginning wire-wrappers.

  • Ring-a-Ding Ring: Monday, August 17, 6:30PM

This is a fun, adjustable ring which looks great whether you choose the plain or fancy design! This would make a great toe ring, too!

  • Darlin's Set: Sunday, September 13, 1PM

You'll love this trio of matching bracelet, ring, and earrings!

Since 3 projects will be created in this class, the class fee for Darlin's set is $45.
  • Cross-Over Bangle: Monday, September 14, 6:30PM

Tools for all wire-wrapping classes will be available for student use, or you may bring your own. Flat nose pliers and flush wire cutters are required for most projects, and you may want to bring these if you have them.


You will leave class with at least one fabulous finished project!


We have samples of most of these projects available at the shop...

These Wire-wrapping classes (except where noted) are $35 + cost of supplies
$15 non-refundable deposit required

Beadwork and Wire-Weaving with Ceil Thomas

  • Wire Crochet Flower Earrings: Saturday, July 25, 10:30 AM
Learn to crochet with sterling silver wire - no prior knowledge of crochet is necessary!
  • Wire-Coiled Earrings: Saturday, August 8, 10:30 AM


    This class will teach you the techniques needed to make those beautiful, intricate chunky coiled wire centerpieces that many of you have seen Ceil wearing. We will be offering a 2-day seminar a bit down the road on making those gorgeous pieces, but successful completion of this earring class will be a required prerequisite.

Note: The wire-coiled earring class is considered an advanced wire-weaving class.

  • Chunky Beaded Cluster: Saturday, August 22, 10:30 AM

This is one of the most popular classes taught at YaYa Beads - it is fun, easy, and a great way to use up those beads left over from previous projects!

Samples of all these projects are available at the shop.

The fee for Ceil's beadwork classes is $30 plus supplies; $15 non-refundable deposit required for registration.


Ceil is also taking appointments for students interested in learning pearl knotting. You can call the shop, or stop in for more information.

Art Clay Silver with Angela Foreman

  • Intro Art Clay Silver: Saturday, August 15, 10:30 AM

Learn to make your own fine silver pendants, charms, rings, and more - Angela's introductory Art Clay Silver technique is a required prerequisite for all her great advanced classes, plus you'll end up with a pendant of your own design! These intro classes are only taught 3 or 4 times a year, so if you've always wanted to try Art Clay Silver, this is a great opportunity.

As of today, there is one opening still available for this class: don't miss out!

The class fee for Intro Art Clay Silver is $65, and includes ALL supplies. $25 non-refundable deposit required for registration.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
