Bead Society of New Mexico
Cost: $45 ($40 class fee + $5 kit cost)
In this class you will learn the ancient technique of Viking Knit which was created by the Vikings in Scandinavia. Fine silver wire was created by melting down silver coins. Chains are created by looping wires together on a dowel, then pulling the pieces through a draw plate to compress and reduce the size of the woven chain. You will create a bracelet out of copper, silver plate, or brass plate wire. You will also learn how to attach a toggle clasp to your finished bracelet. You may not finish your bracelet in class but will leave with the skills to complete your pieces at home.
