Basic Peyote Stitch: A Piece of Cake Bracelet
This is a great seed bead 101 class; we will take it from the beginning. You will learn about the different bead sizes 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.

The Glamour Girl Earring
These simple but elegant earrings remind me of the earrings of the glamour girls of the past and the jewelry they
wore, Sophia Loren, Joan Crawford are just a few. These earrings work up quickly after the first one. These earrings feature Chaton’s and a pear-shaped fancy stone. Depending on the crystal color chosen you have a couple of options for embellishments, 2mm Swarovski crystal, 2mm Czech pearls or 11/0 seed beads. You have the option of utilizing several options for earring findings, you may use a ear-wire or feel free to use a post. *Kits will be available on the day of class.
Prerequisites for this class: proficiency in the peyote stitch and step ups. This is an intermediate level beading
