Beading tutorials: Bead Weaving
With Deborah Smith, sharing with you this beautiful beading technique.
The last class for 2017; Saturday, 9th December, 9am to 1pm.
Bring a plate to share, for a wee bit of pre-Christmas morning tea.
These delightful little ball earrings are a little bit of beading fun for Christmas. They can be made in Pearls, semi-precious beads, glass or crystal beads in any size you want.
At our Saturday morning class we will stitch a pair and make them up into earrings. We will make our own earwires, or purchase some ready-made if you prefer. These would make a stunning strung necklace too, if you want to keep making them. Lots of colours in all different sizes.
We will have wire available for purchase to make your ear wires, and seed beads should you not have your own.
To make one ball, you need:
24 size 11 seed beads.
4mm beads are a good size but you could go smaller or larger, depending on the size you want your balls to be. Swarovski crystal bicones will give you a sparkle, crystal or glass pearls a bit of elegance, or use any other beads you may have in your collection.
Deborah has a great resource of books and beads and samples that she happily shares, so come along and join us.
