Beads in NH - Teacher's Choice Evening Session: Intermediate


Cascading Drops Necklace
Saturday, September 27: 10AM - 1PM (Westport Island, Maine)
Please call for details
Intermediate
Peanut beads and Japanese drop beads combine in a most intriguing way to make the chain of this necklace. Deceptively simple yet complex in appearance.

At one end, attach half of a magnetic clasp. Stitch an elegant ring of drops and crystals to adorn the other end of the chain. Add a cascading counterweight of drops and small crystal cabochettes.

Make a focal element of a large cabochette, lavishly beaded with drop and peanut beads to conceal the other half of the magnetic clasp. When it is completed, drop the magnetic end of the chain through the ring on the far end. Attach the magnetized cabochette, now capped by the ring of beads.

Enjoy learning these techniques that pair peanut and drop beads while composing a fun necklace. The September Class is part of a 2-day weekend in Maine. Please contact Genevieve for more details.

This gold, platinum and diamond bracelet ISN'T. Instead, it is actually composed of seed beads including the new peanut shape.

Secured with a specially designed magnetic clasp, no safety chain is necessary. This bracelet is satisfying and deceptively simple to make. All your friends will want one of these, and its okay because this one works up quickly and easily. This class is part of a 2-day weekend with Carol Cypher in Maine. Please contact Genevieve for details.
