What you'll do
This is a very relaxing and easy opportunity to get in touch with your inner artist while crafting your own beautiful bead pen in a small group at Mama Felise's Chicken Ranch. I will introduce you to the wonderful variety of beads to use with your pens and will provide you with an extensive selection of various colors, shapes, textures and sizes of beads for you to mix and match with your pens. You will receive a modest amount of guidance and advice but will mostly be encouraged to simply explore and revel in the endless combination of colorful beading possibilities as you create your unique masterpieces of usable art. You will be provided with all necessary tools and materials, including 1 blank pen and an assortment of beads and spacers, along with hand tools and a handy reference sheet to take with you that includes a bead sizer chart and a list of reputable and affordable bead vendors. Guests will be served bottled water, coffee or tea. The experience will conclude with a visit to my back yard chicken ranch where you can enjoy a brief meet and greet with the chickens, turkeys and roosters.
Pens, beads & spacers
I learned about bead pens "accidentally" while searching for YouTube videos on new ways of using my vast collection of beads to make jewelry. As a result of that happy accident, I discovered how wonderfully easy and fun it is to combine myriad types of beads in unexpected and unconventional combinations to make original designs that are unique to your personality and color preferences. Since then, I have amassed a collection of thousands of various types of beads to use in the pens that I make as gifts for my Airbnb guests and sell locally at arts & crafts fairs.
Where you'll be
Mama Felise's Chicken Ranch is home to Airbnb Superhost, Mama Felise. You will enjoy my clean, quiet and relaxing home and the sound of soothing classical music playing softly in the background to help stimulate your creative inspiration.
