Last of the 3 beginners classes. My friends were introduced to sanding, stitching, shaker boxes, using stencils to cut out title lettering, rubons, and charms.
Instead of charms, I used actual gemstones. One of the shakers have different kinds of stones stuck down, like Tiger Eye, while the other 2 have sand, gems and gold beads to represent digging for gold under ground.
This was one of the first Gold Mines in Johannesburg, and we were 742 ft underground! Gold Reef City is where the underground mine shaft tours happen. An amazing experience.
I got the gemstones from the few things we received after my dad died in 2007. He polished the small pieces of quarts and rock himself, then turned them into jewelery pieces. We only received a few stones, the jewelery long gone.
