Earrings will all be different, based off of what they choose to design with.

About the instructor:

Kathleen is the Executive Director at the Seacoast Repertory Theatre, but during her free time, she makes jewelry. Kathleen began making jewelry back in the early 2000s as she had two children under the age of two and she needed a hobby to help keep her sane. After many failed attempts at crafts such as crochet, mosaics, etc. she found that jewelry making was a perfect fit and hasn’t stopped since. She lived in Brooklyn NY for eight years and when there, she opened up a bead store and taught classes. Her jewelry has been seen on many celebrities during those years. Now she only does it for fun.
