The first time I heard about Fredrick Prince was after my friend and stylist Desire sent over these awesome pics (the dresses were made at The Make Den). I was so impressed by the beautiful jewelry that he had shot, that I knew I had to ask the designer if she could teach a class!
Well, lucky us – Melissa De Luca agreed and I’m so excited to be offering jewelry-making classes just in time for Christmas!
