Free Spirit Dragonfly Pendant Kits Available

Full disclosure: the companies mentioned in this post are either sponsoring me to teach, sent product for me to play with or both.  All opinions are my own.dragonfly detailIt’s Bead Fest Summer prep time here in my world.  I’m teaching 13 classes and hosting a tailgate party Saturday morning with Jesse James Beads.

I love throwing parties and am lucky to have found Jesse James Beads who does also.

If you follow me on Facebook, you might’ve caught the live video where I showed how to paint dragonfly pendants like the one above.  It also happens to be one of my classes at this weekend’s Bead Fest sponsored by Beadalon, Jesse James Beads and Vintaj.

I know some of you can’t make it, so I assembled some fun, one of a kind kits for this piece in my Etsy shop.  A little piece of Bead Fest sent right to your door when I get back next week (kits ship Aug. 26th).  I hope you love them as much as I do.  dragonfly
