CHEVRON CHAIN 

Friday April 26th, Afternoon

Using round and drop-shaped seed beads, stitch a soft, fluid chevron chain necklace which fastens with a button and loop. Don’t want a necklace? You will have enough beads to make two or three bracelets (depending on wrist size).

This chain is like Goldilocks: not too bold yet not too delicate, not to simple yet not too complicated - just right!



Materials in the kit include:

Size 11º seed beads
Size 8º seed beads
Fringe beads
Shank button
Beading needle
Beading thread


COCKTAIL RINGS

Friday April 26th, Evening

Use crystals and seed beads to stitch a sparkling cocktail ring that you will size to fit your finger. Time permitting, stitch a second ring using different beads for a different effect.


Materials in the kit include:

Size 11º seed beads
Fringe beads
Faceted crystal rondelle beads
Beading needle
Beading thread



LOS LOBES 

Saturday April 27th, Morning


Starting with a dagger bead which dangles off the bottom, learn to stitch three different motifs for these fun earrings. 

Use all three motifs as shown to make your first pair of earrings, and then design your second and third pairs using one or more of the motifs you just learned.

Materials in the kit include:

Size 11º seed beads
4mm fire-polished beads
Small magatamas
Dagger beads
Ear wires
Beading needle
Beading thread


LEYSIR

Saturday April 27th, Afternoon



Learn a simple, versatile stitch which makes an understated chain on which you will suspend a laser-cut wooden pendant. Use larger beads strategically incorporated into the chain to keep the pendant centred so that you don’t have to keep adjusting the clasp to the back of your neck when wearing it.


Optionally add subtle interest with a repeating pattern using the larger seed beads and berry beads. The necklace fastens with a hand-forged S-hook clasp. 


Materials in the kit:

Size 11º seed beads
Size 8º seed beads
Laser-cut wooden pendant
S-clasp
Beading needle
Beading thread

Size 11º seed beads
Two-hole Super Duos
Shank button

IMPILATI

Sunday April 28th, Morning

Three different sizes of seed beads are stitched into these star-shaped beaded beads. Stitch the olive-shaped core using mostly the larger beads, and then stitch the points of the star while firming it up by adding an overlay of the smaller and medium-sized seed beads.




The holes through these beaded beads are big enough to string on narrow cord or a very fine quite easily for a necklace; they are also the perfect size for earrings.

Materials

Size 6º seed beads, two colours
Size 8º seed beads
Size 11º seed beads
Narrow waxed cotton cord 
Beading needle
Beading thread
