The Delaware Valley Bead Society (DVBS) will sponsor Sandra Lupo and her Conetastic™ tool on Tuesday, October 20, 2015, at 7pm in the Café of the Hunterdon County Senior Center, 4 Gauntt Place - Building #1, Flemington, NJ. The program is free and open to the public, but non-members must pre-register.
The ancient art of wire-coiling has been used for centuries in jewelry-making. Sandra Lupo has developed a new ‘twist’ (pun intended!) with the invention of her ‘Conetastic™’ wire coiling tool, which takes wire coiling a step further. The resulting cone-shaped coils of wire make fabulous beads and bead caps for strung designs, earrings, tassel-toppers, Kumihimo and so much more. Add to their design impact by using colored wire or round-, square- or twisted-wire.
In addition to teaching wire and bead and metalwork techniques at local museums, arts workshops and wherever creative students gather and seek knowledge in the art of jewelry-making, Lupo also teaches nationally and internationally at bead festivals and shows. She has been on expert advice teams and has judged jewelry making competitions. As an inventor, Lupo is working with the Beadalon team to develop and bring her inventions to the marketplace to help students find ways to satisfy their desire to create and realize their needs for the very best findings and tools.
Lupo will demonstrate her ‘Conetastic™’ tool during the two-hour DVBS meeting. To register, e-mail your name, address and phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (908) 246-1231.
