Starting this weekend, check out Fashion on the Factory Floor, a Holiday Market in Brooklyn featuring a curated selection of talented local designers. The event is free and open to the public. Stop by November 23-24 or November 30 – December 1, from 10am – 6pm at 241 37th Street in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.
There’s something for everyone including women’s and men’s apparel, jewelry, accessories, handbags, and gifts from 50 up-and-coming designers. Locally-made food and exciting events will be on hand to entertain the whole family.
One particular workshop that I am excited about is a jewelry-making demonstration by Lenore Solmo of Beadspa. If you have ever wanted to learn to make your own jewelry, this demo will give you a taste of the craft. Learn wire wrapping, gemstone application, beading, charm-making and other techniques. Classes are available for $40 at 11am, 1pm, and 3pm each day with supplies included. Or enter their raffle, which awards a free workshop for the winner and four friends.
If you are interested in having your own jewelry-making party, Beadspa will provide all the supplies necessary for a hostess for groups of 4-12 or more. Lenore has extensive experience in fashion accessories and trend forecasting having sold in boutiques and department stores across the country. She has worked as a mentor to jewelry designers in NYC and China and has now focused her career on teaching through Beadspa, started 8 years ago. She hopes to share with clients the joy and peace jewelry-making may bring.
For Holiday/Resort 2013-2014, Beadspa is offering three workshops: Galactic Gems Workshop (Agates with AB and metallic hologram effects), Dark Garden Workshop (jewel tone beaded florals) and Charmed I’m Sure Workshop (wire wrapped crystals and vintage inspired charms).
Enter for a chance to win one of Lenore’s Dark Garden beaded cuffs via Rafflecopter. Contest ends Wednesday, November 27 at 11:59pm.
Promotion is only offered to residents of the USA. You must use Rafflecopter to enter. Winner will be notified via email and will have 24 hours to claim their prize. After that time, winner will be disqualified and another winner will be drawn. Good luck!
