FENSTER 

Friday April 20th, Afternoon

Capture a clear cabochon using seed beads and pinch beads to create a colourful bead-netted mandala shape that forms the back of the bezel, visible from the front as well. 
Complete the pendant with a crystal-clear drop and a beaded bail on which to suspend it on a necklace, or if preferred, use this as the focal in the centre of the necklace created in Offset Chain in the evening.
Materials in the kit include:

Clear glass low-dome cabochon
Size 11º seed beads in a coordinating palette of colours
Clear glass drop bead
Beading needle
Beading thread

OFFSET CHAIN

Friday April 20th, Evening

Two sizes of seed beads and pinch beads are used to create this delicate chain with textural interest.  The repetitive stitch is easy to remember and even though it uses very small seed beads, part of the repeat adds multiple beads at a time, making this faster to stitch than you might imagine.

This chain can be used as a necklace or as a wrap bracelet, or if you prefer, short lengths make fabulous statement earrings - you’ll have enough beads in the kit to make earrings for all the nieces!

Each half of the necklace can be attached to a focal such as Fenster in the session before this one.

A discount of $5 will be given if students sign up for both classes.
Materials in the kit include:

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



LEAFY 

Saturday April 21st, Morning

Learn a variation of the incredibly versatile corralling technique to make frothy leafy fringed elements that can be used as the focal of a necklace, as the ends of a lariat or as stunning earrings. 
Materials in the kit include:

Size 8º seed beads
Size 11º seed beads in at least two colours
Metal rings
Ribbon
Necklace ends or earring findings (optional)
Beading needle

CHUNKY CATERPILLAR BRACELET

Saturday April 21st, Afternoon

Make this tactile, textural bracelet as full as you like by simply stitching back and forth a few mow times - stop when it looks good to you.
This straightforward fringing technique can produce a variety of effects depending on the beads being used from tiny seed beads to larger seed beads to shaped beads - they all have their place, and the stitching is uncomplicated enough to be within everyone’s grasp, but fun even for more experienced beaders.
Materials in the kit:

Size 6º seed beads
Size 11º seed beads
4mm cube beads
Shank button
Beading needle
Beading thread


DAISY ORNAMENT

Saturday April 21st, Evening

Use two sizes of seed beads and dagger beads to stitch a delicate netted cover for a glass ornament.

Students will learn two variants of a daisy chain: the first produces a closely-spaced chain daisies t form the collar of the ornament, and the second more airy variant will be used to make a bead-netted drape, terminating in dagger beads.

Everyone will start by making the same daisy-motif collar, and then students can choose to make a less ornate version of the drape that dos not include the daisy motif although still using the same beads, or the drape as pictured.
Materials in kits include:

Size 8º seed beads
Size 11º seed beads
Dagger beads or other drop beads
Round glass ornament
needle
thread
