Additional Information
I have always been intrigued by Marcasite jewelry -- so very delicate with tiny sparkles! So I designed my own version of a Marcasite piece using beads. Students will use a combination of different sizes and shapes of seed beads and the newer Demi beads to create this elegant bracelet. The bracelet is delicate in nature and very lightweight. Stitch a duel layered focal point with a rose montee and Swarovski crystals, then connect half-loops to the focal for the bracelet band.
Students will Learn:
Students will work two very different sides of the bracelet using different stitches connected by a center tube.
Students must be proficient in circular peyote stitch and the herringbone stitch with step ups
Project completion:
Project will not be completed in class
