Girl Scout Jewelry Making Workshop

This past week I have been working on putting together some projects for a Jewelry Making Workshop for a group of Girl Scouts.  This one was a little different from some of the others we have done because some of these girls had been to summer camp here and I needed to come up with something different.

Pendants made from water bottles and acrylic paint.

I made these ahead of time.  They took several days as each layer of paint had to dry before the next layer could be added.  These will be one of the things students will make during summer camp this coming summer – they were so fun!

Each student chose a pendant and then built her necklace around it.  We talked about balance, color and finished length.

Each table had two of these delicious platters of beads.  They were used to design and make bracelets.

Overall, there were 13 girls in attendance and each project turned out different and fabulous!  I can’t wait to teach the next workshop!
