"An Afternoon of Insect Curiosities"
48 E. Gay St.
on Sunday Dec. 16th from 1-4pm
Amy will be signing copies of her new book.
This will be a big bug event with friends and local artists who have bug art, bug jewelry and even live bugs.
Create 23 cute and clever bugs and little crawly critters out of beads, wire, and other craft materials with Bead Bugs! Each project is shown in step-by-step photos with clear instructions that anyone can follow. Variations of each project encourage the crafter to imagine all kinds of ways to make the bugs unique. Bead bugs and critters can be used in various ways—as ornaments, put on display, made into jewelry, made into mobiles, displayed in a terrarium, or framed in shadow boxes.
In these pages, you’ll learn to create:
- Hermit crabs
- Sea horses
- And more
The possibilities are endless. Get your imagination crawling with this fun-filled book!
