Beading 101 - Blingy Embellished Cuff Bracelet Workhop
Beading 101! This bracelet looks very impressive, but is actually easy to make and is a great introduction to bead weaving.
The class is taught in two parts, each 3 hours in length, purposefully a week apart to give students time to finish the base.
This first class will cover the basics of bead weaving: thread types, needles, color selections, types of seed beads. Then even count Peyote stitch is introduced, including starting, adding new thread, and finishing off. The class will start to build the base for their bracelets, which is an 8 bead wide cuff, constructed of 6 beads in a solid color. The students will be able to take this home to finish their base prior to the second class.
The second class, one week later, will cover different types of embellishment, and the sequence will be taught for embellishing the bracelet. After time to complete these steps, the class will review different types of clasps, and the clasp for this bracelet (3 hole bar clasp) will be attached. Students will leave with their bracelets complete.
Class fee: $50 for the two-part class, includes a detailed pattern for this bracelet, a needle, thread, and use of instructors supplies for thread part to base.
Supply Kit is available at cost from the instructor for $18
