Day 1 Morning Demo with Barbara McGuire

Barbara McGuire will be with us from 10-Noon teaching how to make 7 different types of beaded links:

  • Lollipop/head pin
  • Double Lollipop with beads
  • Wrap/Lollipop with wrap
  • Spiral/headpin
  • Lollipop with spiral headpin
  • Cage with spiral
  • Wrapped cage with spiral

Barbara is known for her face canes, linked beaded necklaces, shimmering mokume gane, and has authored a number of books on wire, clay, design, and more. She also produces a line of unmounted stamps, sold through her Etsy store.


This is a basic class with emphasis on ‘right practice’. If you wish to ‘wrap along’, you will need the following supplies – however, this is a demo and the instructor will move quickly, answering questions in the allotted breaks.

This session will not be recorded.

  • Uncoated Copper Wire: Gauges 16, 18, 20
  • Sterling Wire gauge 20 (for ear wires)


  • Flush Cutters
  • Round Nose
  • Flat Nose
  • Chain Nose
  • Pin Vise
  • Assorted Drill Bits
  • Polymer beads

Day 1 Afternoon Demo with Kelly Russell

Learn a fascinating hollow bead technique from Kelly Russel. Believe it or not, these beads start with baked clay and are a wonderful way to use up odds and ends of veneer sheets made in other classes and from projects. Supplies list forthcoming.

Kelly works in metal clay, metal, polymer and more. Her demo at our last Claybor Day Retreat was fantastic!
