Bead Circle Update
NEW: This netting technique used in the “Silky Dream Bracelet” by Maria Teresa Moran constructs straps of diamond-shaped “Silky” beads encased in seed beads, then puts it all together with a sparkling crystal embellishment. Click on the photo for details and to reserve your seat:
NEW: Incorporate accent beads to create the teardrop effect in the fun “Russian Drops Necklace” by Lilly Knackstedt. It’s lightweight, elegant, and because of it’s modest size, lays very nicely when worn. Since we are stitching this piece in early December, it would also be beautiful to create in seasonal colors and wear to your holiday parties or to make as a gift!
