Additional Information
Reminiscent of Victorian watch fobs, this versatile lariat uses a variety of stitches and materials. Wear it long or short -- the seed bead embellished chain creates a sturdy structure from which two distinctly different fob-like pendants are suspended. Swarovski crystals of different shapes add just the right amount of sparkle.
Students will Learn:
Learn how to make two distinct pendant pieces: first work with Navette-shaped crystals in metal settings to create a 3-D “fob” capped with a domed crystal bead; then make two flat-back crystals into a double-sided pendant. Learn how to stitch seed beads on a metal chain to create a sturdy and elegant rope from which to suspend your crystal pieces.
Must have working knowledge of peyote stitch.
