3rd Annual Creative Retreat ~ Bellagio ~ Class 2

Nov 22, 2013

Charmed Memento

I shared a sneak peek of my “Textile Collage Sampler” a few days ago and today I’m sharing a sneak peek of my second class “Charmed Memento”. In this class I’ll show you how to take a simple wooden spool and turn it into a beautiful piece of wearable art. You’ll use pieces of linen burlap and scallop trim to cover the spool then add accents of iridescent rhinestone trim and vintage buttons. You will create a unique charm holder from copper wire that will attach to the base of the spool to display charms like a miniature handmade crocheted doily lovingly created by my mom, a vintage button, a glass bottle you fill with a bit of sand from Lake Como and a chandelier bead ready for you to add words to from a vintage book page. Your unique piece of wearable art will hang from a necklace made from seam binding and a strand of pearl chain which is perfect since Bellagio is known as the “Pearl of the Lake”.

If you wish, you can continue to enjoy creating and adding unique charms to make a wonderful memento. You’ll have fun getting creative while filling your charm holder with little mementos from this amazing creative retreat. I have a few charms I created from small pieces of washed up lake glass and terra cotta that Laura, Victoria and Caroline and I picked up along the shore in 2012. These charms bring back such lovely memories.
