Design & Unwind - For May's session, we ambitiously took on three projects: button bracelets, nail polish jewelry, and galaxy tealight candle holders (also painted with nail polish). We played with a lot of multi-chromatic and glittery nail polish--the pictures don't do justice to the depth and beauty of the finished pieces! (The glare against the glass from the camera's flash and from the ceiling lights doesn't help. Sigh.) Visit our Facebook page to view even more pictures from the evening and to view photo albums from previous sessions.
Our next Design & Unwind, with an all-new surprise featured project, will be on Friday, June 21 at 6:30. Spaces are limited, and registration is required by Wednesday, June 19.
Contact the library at 302-227-8044 to sign up for any of these exciting programs.
