Learn how to bezel new Swarovski vision stones and create geometric shapes directly off the bezels. The overlapping diamond-shaped components stitched with cylinder beads and seed beads combine geometric, structural bead weaving techniques with soft, sinuous surface embellishment for a statement bracelet that is both modern and classic.
Students will Learn:
Construction of geometric components off of a beaded bezel using peyote stitch, herringbone stitch, and netting, plus adding embellishments on the surface of the components.
Proficiency in peyote stitch, tubular peyote stitch, netting, and herringbone stitch. Familiarity with geometric components is desirable.
