Florida West Coast Bead Society is sponsoring three days of classes from November 3 through November 5, 2018 with nationally known beading instructor Cristie Prince. Cristie has been designing and teaching bead woven jewelry for more than 15 years. Her design aesthetic is refined, classic and elegant jewelry that you'll want to wear every day. Many of her designs have been published, including covers on Beadwork Magazine and Favorite Bead Stitches. Cristy has taught at BeadFest Philly, BeadFest SantaFe, and the Bead & Button Show, as well as at many bead societies and bead stores. Her goal is to share her designs through clear and thorough instructions.

Cristie will be teaching three beautiful projects she designed. All classes will be held at the Designing Women's Boutique in Sarasota. Cristie will also be our guest speaker at the Bead Society meeting at the Waldemere Fire Station on Monday, November 5th at 7 PM.  She will have a trunk show/sale of her kits, and there will be a reception in her honor following the meeting.
