On a square base woven from fire-polished beads, embellish a network of seed beads and small magatamas to create a support for a round rivoli that is captured in a square setting. Join components to each other with delicate, gently-draping woven chain to form a lightweight statement necklace that fastens with a self-clasp.
Students will Learn:
How to add embellishment to a woven base to stiffen and decorate it; how to create a bezel for a rivoli; how to use a simple chain technique to connect the components in a sophisticated arrangement.
Experience with right-angle weave, netting.
