Yesterday, Stacie had L and another girl over to her studio for an earring-making session. I think both learned a lot; I certainly did, about tools and terms. I had no idea what a jump ring was (the other mother was much more savvy), but now I not only know what it is, I know the correct way to open and close one! Stacie helped the girls all afternoon, picking beads, deciding on a design, helping them twist the wires. It was a wonderful one-on-one tutorial and it opened up a desire in L to get more involved in making something. I think she's quite pleased with these. And she took the photos, too!
