Additional Information
Description:
Create an amazing pendant with a natural Nautilus shell. These shells have been banned from exporting but Jody has enough in her stash to share and offer a special class. Students will use Jody’s free-from “Raised Texture” bead embroidery style along with peyote stitch and Jody’s peyote wave technique. Students will design and make their pendant using shells, coral, crystal, pearls, and seed beads. Students will finish their pendant with a soft leather backing and picot edging, and a beaded bail. Each kit will be one-of-a-kind in many colorways.
Students will Learn:
Learn free-form beading with a “Raised Texture” embroidery style; use peyote stitch for a bezel around the shell and peyote bands and waves for more texture, movement, and interest. Learn how to place and design elements to create a coral reef look around your Nautilus shell; how to add soft leather backing with a clean edging technique, and stitch a peyote bail to hang you pendant.
