Fear of Enameling? Have no fear...our easy Enameled Bracelet Class is here! Vicki Thatcher will lead you through the enameling process, including designing your bracelet, applying enameling powders to your copper disc or cross, firing, and finally stringing beads to attach to the finished disk/cross.  Because it is enameled on both sides, it is REVERSIBLE.
