Class: Steampunk Mini Book Pendant with Arley Berryhill

Join Arley Saturday for a steampunk version of his popular mini-book pendant class.  Create a gorgeous pendant for the bibliophile in your life.  A soft leather cover delicately envelopes "aged" pages and a bit of exquisite hardware and vintage ephemera adds to the mystery of whats inside.  The chain necklace is NOT part of the class, but if you want to stay after class, Arley will help you make a necklace.  If you want to make the necklace, bring a chain (20" - 36" long), jump rings, eye pins, fastener, beads, and round nose jewelry pliers.
