Intermediate Bead-Weaving Class: “Snow in Silver Necklace”
February 24 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm$9
“Snow in Silver Necklace”
Date: Saturday, February 24 | Time: 10:30 – 12:30 | Difficulty Level: Intermediate | Instructor: Sue
Cost: $9 plus materials or you can use your Laura’s Bead Addicts Membership Club Card (This class qualifies for our “first time is free” promotion, so if this is your first time joining us in the beading room, be sure to let us know when you check in on class day and we’ll waive the class fee!)
To make this beautiful necklace you’ll be stitching a base of netting using two different colors of seed beads to create the eye-catching stripes. Small bugle beads bridge each stripe and a third color of 11 defines your netting “intersections”. Embellish your completed netting with crystals, pearls, or druks.
Variations of this necklace have been seen around Pinterest for quite some time, and we’re not sure exactly where it originated, however we got much of our inspiration and the name “Snow in Silver” from designer Tatiana Garkushova, http://biser.info/node/115554. We then decided to create our own modified version and write up a detailed pattern in English.
Ready for the Next Step in Bead Weaving?
This is the perfect class for you! Intermediate bead weaving classes expand on the techniques you’ve learned in the beginner classes and take you to the next level. Some bead weaving experience is necessary to take an intermediate level class. Classes have a minimum of 2 people and a maximum of 10 so that everyone gets plenty of teacher time. The instructor will have already made the piece so that you can see what is looks like completed.
We ask that you always use supplies from Laura’s Beads when in our beading room. Thank you!
