RSVP offers jewelry design class in Boaz

Posted: Friday, March 29, 2013 5:41 pm | Updated: 5:51 pm, Fri Mar 29, 2013.

Beautiful, unique or custom jewelry doesn’t have to be expensive. Local resident Arlene Rakestraw is here to show residents why.

Rakestraw is the jewelry design class instructor for the Marshall County Retired and Senior Volunteer Program. For the first time, residents living on top of Sand Mountain won’t have to drive all the way to Guntersville to participate in the class. Starting Tuesday, the Beginning Jewelry Design class will be offered at the Boaz Public Library. The class is divided into three sessions on Tuesday and April 9 and 16. Each session is from 10 a.m. to noon. Participants will make a pair of earrings, a necklace and possibly a bracelet during the beginners’ course. They will learn how to use the tools and findings, which are the items like clasps, ear wires and other assembly components, as well as how to combine colors and beads. Cost is $25, and all tools, beads and findings are provided.
