Additional Information
Inspired by nature, delicately sculpted and shaded leaves sprinkled with crystal dew drops are linked to form the “Frond” necklace. It is gracefully linked to a flexible necklace strand with a beaded jewel clasp and falling leaf.
Students will Learn:
How to make and join together the individual shaded and sculpted leaves using Russian Leaf stitch; how to begin the necklace chain using a form of herringbone; how to create the crystal pear bezel using peyote stitch.
Some experience with needle and thread beadwork; the ability to hold a firm tension is desirable. Students who have only learned to bead via YouTube should practice making items from written instructions and diagrams.
