Fundamentals, skills, and techniques covered:

The Sweet Thang Bracelet is just plain fun. In using these newer crystal coin pearls, I had such fun creating a bracelet with pearls and turning the beadwork on the pearls in a non-traditional fashion. Add a bit of bling with some crystals using multiple sizes, shapes and colors of seed beads and a self-closure, and you’re off rockin’ where ever you go! You WILL NOT complete this project in class.

Prerequisites/Skills Needed: All students must be proficient in the peyote stitch

Materials you are required to bring: Beading needles: #10 and #12, beading thread: FireLine 6lb. test or One G. Scissors, micro-crystalline beading wax. Task light, highly suggested. Magnification, highly suggested. Work surface.

You will have a blast making this wonderfully elegant necklace, made with Miyuki’s cotton pearls and Mini Duo’s. Since this necklace is made with cotton pearl, it is amazingly light in weight. As this necklace is a component-based piece, once you have made the first one, each component works up very quickly by connecting one to another. You can make your necklace adjustable in length by making an additional toggle clasp in second length. You must be proficient in the peyote stitch. You WILL NOT complete this project in class.
