Local artisan Ellen Sisco creates jewelry from a wide variety of materials. Having worked with stones, metals, and beads of all kinds in her jewelry for 25 years, she conducts a popular class on basic beading techniques the Susquehanna River Archaeological Center (SRAC) at 345 Broad Stree, Waverly NY on Saturday, October 1st, from 11:30am – 1:30pm . Students will be provided with instruction and all the supplies they will need, including semiprecious stone beads, glass beads, metal beads, pearls and tools so that they may create their own gift, keepsake, or special piece. Beads in all colors of the rainbow are available, and Ellen has made a special purchase of unusual and beautiful semiprecious stone beads just for these classes. Learn to make necklaces, bracelets, earrings and other jewelry.
Just ask about any style you would like to try, and Ellen will teach you how to create jewelry to match your wardrobe, and to make things for the holidays; now you can make your own jewelry for Halloween and Christmas. The fee for this two hour beading class is $25. RSVP's are greatly appreciated by calling the Center at (607)565-7960 or by emailing info@SRAcenter.org.
