Students will combine crystals, chips and a variety of stone and glass beads into a cluster at the base of a chain. Students will work from a kit of beads in their choice of color. The beads will be woven on random pattern to create a pleasing design. Although the necklace looks intricate, it is simple to complete and no previous beading experience is needed.
About the instructor: “As children we could get out of doing dishes if we read. We read a lot. And, we could watch television if we had a project we were working on while we watched. Hence, all my life I have gotten into the habit of having a lap project—jewelry making, embroidery, sewing, or experimenting with a variety of artistic medium.”
