I’ve been so caught up with work that I completely forgot to share any photos of my new classes for 2018-2020!
Lots of my classes are waiting for dates, subject & venue to be confirmed, but here's a sneak peek at 4 new ones which I'll be teaching over the next couple of years.
First up is my Estrella class and it's definitely an advanced project! I beaded the original necklace many years ago but have adapted it for a class and tested it using a lovely acrylic cabochon and a Swarovski Fancy Stone to make sure it works with both.
Secondly there's my Lisa class. This class covers multiple components which can be used to make necklaces, pendants, earrings & bracelets.
A third new class is Connesso. This advanced class is about beading links to make unique chains and covers how to switch from beading a piece of round Peyote Stitch to tubular Brick Stitch with some clever increasing and stitching tricks incorporated.
The fourth one shown is Ligilo. Again an advanced class, this covers making this unique necklace with a dramatic crystal centrepiece and fully beaded chain and clasp. The bezel and accompanying beadwork are designed to highlight and show-off the focal crystals without overwhelming or distracting from them.
So do check out my class dates to see when any of these (or any of the other new ones I've sneaked onto my portfolio page) are being taught near you.
