Jewelry making instructor and Community Fine Arts Center assistant director Jennifer Messer is teaching March's class the "Traveler Bracelet" Friday. This project will help students layer leather or cord, beads and charms to make a fun personal bracelet. The final spring class will be May's "Chandelier Earrings" before the summer class schedule starts at the end of June.

"These bracelets are so fun because it is so easy to add on to them," Messer said. "You can attach charms from trips, use beads that are your, or your family's, birthstones, mix different kinds of metals, whatever strikes your fancy."

Messer has degrees from Western Wyoming College, Montana State University and the University of Wyoming. This is her eighth year of teaching jewelry making at the CFAC and the first time she has offered this particular set of classes. This past summer Messer taught a three part advanced jewelry making class on how to stitch a beaded Cellini Spiral.

Interested individuals can see examples of each project and register at the CFAC for a small supply fee. The two classes are identical in content and run between an hour and two hours each.

Classes take place at the CFAC, Fridays from noon to 2 p.m. and Mondays from 6 to 8 p.m., all supplies are included for each class and class sizes are limited for one on one interaction. CFAC hours are Monday through Thursday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Friday and Saturdays from noon to 5 p.m.
