A Piece of Cake Bracelet
This is a great seed bead 101 class, as we will take it from the beginning. You will learn about the different bead sizes, types and shapes, about needles and thread types.
So, if you’ve never tried peyote because of those little beads, why not give peyote another look with larger double size beads. Create a band of single even count peyote to fit your wrist. Embellish the sides with a ruffle of drop/fringe/dagger beads. Create closure with a bead loop and a Czech flower bead, a button or use a purchased clasp. Once you learn the technique these bracelets work up fast!
Excellent for beginners.

These are the most adorable earrings, and Luna cabs come in so many wonderful colors. I bet you can’t just make one! Start with building your bezel for your yummy Luna cab, set your cab and then the real fun starts. The embellishment or the icing on the cab!

Stitches: you must be proficient in the peyote stitch.
Techniques: circular peyote and embellishments.
• We will discuss options on how to customize the design to personalize the earrings and pendant, such as shortening or deleting the chain.
• If you have never stitched this type of project, it is highly suggested that you make the earrings as each earring is smaller and you will finish the one earring in class and thus learn the technique.
Your choice of two bead color pallets: Gold tone or Silver tone. You will have your choice of Luna cab color.
