Crystals and Beads Jewelry Workshop

On Friday May 9, a dozen kids and their parents met in the Story Room at Central Library to create beautiful jewelry in our Crystals and Beads Jewelry Workshop!  There was a wide range of ages, from 4 to 15, and the project was challenging for some but everyone came away with a new bracelet or necklace that they designed themselves.  Many kids made necklaces for their moms as Mother’s Day gifts.  Check out some of the finished necklaces!

We’re going to have another fun jewelry making program for kids on Thursday, June 12 at 3:30 pm.  Kids will draw their own pictures, watch them shrink into hard plastic charms, and then attach them to jewelry or other items of their choosing.  This class will max out at 20 participants so sign up now!

I'm a youth services librarian currently working at the Lamanda Park Branch Library while Central Library is closed for seismic repairs. I purchase juvenile fiction for grades 2-8, and some foreign languages. I do a lot of programs with school-age kids, including 3 regular book clubs (Windows and Mirrors, Read Around the World, and Lucha Libros), as well as writing workshops and STEAM/science programs. I also Infant/Toddler Storytimes and Preschool Storytimes, and outreach to local area preschools. I love what I do, working with kids of all ages to inspire them to learn and use their curiosity and imaginations. Outside of my work at the library, I am also the author of a book on creative writing activities for kids.
