Bon Bon Beads

March 3, 2021 @ 10:30 am 12:30 pm

“Bon Bon Beads”

We are absolutely addicted to beaded beads, but these are not like any other beaded beads we’ve made previously — they are all made on a continuous piece of thread! Since you don’t have to keep ending and weaving in separate threads and tails, or doing any assembly at the end, you won’t believe how quick your piece will work up. Because of this we figured it would be fun to make not just a bracelet, as the original pattern shows, but to make a set. Then we put matching decorative magnet clasps on each piece so we can connect them together to wear as a longer necklace instead. We also spaced out our beaded beads a little differently than the original design by incorporating some 8mm bicones for some added sparkle!

This piece is designed by Emi Yamada, and is provided compliments of Starman.  We will distribute copies of this pattern to participants who attend this class.


Instructor: Laura

Technique: Beaded Beads

Difficulty Level: Beginner
New to beading? This is the perfect class for you! Beginner classes will teach you all the basics; no previous experience is necessary. These classes are small in size so you’ll get plenty of teacher time. You’ll begin to familiarize yourself with the terminology of jewelry making and where applicable, start to understand how to read patterns.
