Spend a fun, relaxing evening here at Biomes and make your own sea glass jewelry necklace!  Local artist Georgia Hitti is leading the workshop and will provide all the supplies and knowledge you need to make your own necklace that you can keep for yourself or give as a wonderful hand-made gift.  We will supply the sea glass, wire, clasps, gift box, and have tools to share including a drill!  If you have your own wire tools, please bring them with you.  You are also welcome to bring your own sea glass if you have a special piece you've collected!  This event is designed for adults and is BYOB. 

Georgia's pieces can be seen here in the Biomes gift shop.
