Join us for Woven Wire Bangle Bracelet with Elaine Imoto

It's hard to let some of your cherished treasures go, even when they break. How about rejuvenating them into a beautiful bangle? In this class Elaine and her Teachers Assistant will teach you how to take old watch faces, beads, crystals, and/or pearls and artfully wire them into a bangle bracelet!

Supply fee is $10 and includes gold color wire for bangle bracelet, 20 black beads,* and beading/wire-work tools.

What to bring:

  • $10 supply fee*
  • 20 beads/pearls/crystals to class**
  • Broken or unused watch face (optional)
  • Beading/wire-work tools (optional)
  • Snack and beverage

*If you bring your own beads reduce the supply fee by $5.

**If you do not have large beads, go to Ben Franklin Mapunapuna and choose 20 beads from "the scoop jar" which is sold by the scoop, or black beads will be available for purchase at the start of class.

If you'd like to own the beading/wire-work tools purchase a set from BEAD GALLERY on Queen Street.

Instructor Bio

A long time Honolulu Museum of Art (HOMA) volunteer, Elaine Imoto learned to weave baskets with bale straps from Professor Gaye Chan of University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. Imoto took Chan’s reuse & recycle class in the December 2021 HOMA Artists of Hawaii Now program at which these weaving materials (the bales) were handed out.
