Looking for a last minute experience-type gift?

‘Tis the season, so I have to let you know!

Storychick will be teaching a new class at the Rochester Brainery on 2/4!  You can sign up a loved one now and share the experience in just over a month.

This class is a direct result of the hands-on experience at the Rochester Maker Faire.  Everyone will get to try their hand at the regular, rolled circle, rolled S, and origami water-bomb beads – then you can continue working to create a string or a new creation all your own – whatever inspires you!

Ah, but there’s a twist!


These are STORY beads.

We’ll be including pieces of stories that are important to you in the beads themselves.  Those who are ready and willing can share these stories as we work or at the end of the session.  At a minimum, your beads will carry your story for you.

This is a great way to start healing from painful stories, to create a piece that carries the tale of a loved one, and to have some fun creating – even if your story seems to be an everyday tale.

Supplies will be provided, but if you have any papers that you are fond of – any favorites from holiday gifts, for example – you’re welcome to bring them.

See you in February!




Storychick out & about – July/ early August

We’re going to be crazy busy the next couple of months, which is awesome!

First up, THIS Saturday, July 13th, Storychick will be at the Brainery Bazaar – along with Sweet & Cute and Janda Made! I’ll have all of the bead jewelry, plus Storystarters available to order and information on Rochester Stories.

Storychick beads encore

Look for me at the Corn Hill Arts Festival, and Park Ave Festival, roaming around looking for stories, and at the July Food Truck Rodeo at the market!

Hope to see you at one or more of these events!
