We love teaching classes and think it's really fun when people come back into the store to show us what else they have created since taking a jewelry making class with us. Late last week, Jessica came in and gave me an update on what she has been up to since she took our Upcycled Necklace class. She teaches at Woodrow Wilson Academy in Westminster and taught her students how to make the upcycled flower necklaces!
She emailed me a couple of pictures and this little note -
"They were made to earn money for the Wright Cause Walk which is an organization our school created to help people in need at our school that are affected by cancer. They are featured on the Tour de Fashion truck too." The Tour De Fashion truck is giving all of the monies from the sales of the necklaces directly back to the students to donate.
While I was at the Santa Fe Art Walk on Friday evening, I hopped onto the Tour De Fashion truck to see the super cute necklaces that Jessica's students had been creating. How completely adorable! I totally forgot to grab a picture, sorry! The necklaces were really cute, it's really exciting to see the things that people learned how to do here at The Colorado Bead Company in the WILD! You all are just so impressive, and so sweet.
