A blue, turquoise and gold beaded bracelet will be the jewelry that students will create at the Happy Hours Jewelry Design class on Saturday afternoon, Oct. 28, from1 to 4 p.m. at the Many Historic Depot Museum.
Talented jewelry designer Cheryl Pearsall, whose original jewelry is displayed at the Depot Art Guild, will instruct the class. Pearsall learned to make jewelry almost 20 years ago when she lived in Florida and worked at an upscale art gallery. She said she admired a beaded box, and the artist agreed to teach her how to make original items like the beaded boxd and jewelry from beads and wire.
Her designs, which are all original, are coveted and sell for high dollars. You can view them at the Depot Art Gallery. She has many faithful followers who check frequently to see if she has any new creations for sale at the gallery which is open on Saturdays from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
Those interested in taking the class on Oct. 28 must call to reserve a spot since spaces are limited. The telephone number to call is 727-534-1057 to hold your place in the class. Fee to take the three-hour jewelry making class is $25 which pays for materials and supplies.
The jewelry design/making classes are sponsored by the Depot Art Guild, the Town of Many, Many Mayor Ken Freeman and the Many Cultural District Advisory Committee.
