Kristina returns to teach a Master Class at the Bead&Button Show! During this special class, Kristina will explain and demonstrate her techniques in making big, beautiful shapes containing intricate patterns and detailed surfaces. Kristina has a unique approach to teaching, striving to give you confidence in your skills and a new way of looking at your own work. Students come away from her classes invigorated and with a greater sense of confidence at the torch.

Kristina will help you gain more precision in beadmaking by helping you gain better overall control over dot placement, heat control, and intricate decoration. She will demonstrate how to make large disks on large diameter mandrels. In addition, she will explain and demonstrate a wide variety of techniques, including surface decoration, clear casing, raking and feathering, and color choice.

Kristina will also demonstrate how she lines the inside of her beads with sterling silver and you should be able to line one of your own beads with silver in the class.

Students must be able to work independently at the torch.
