Bead Circle – Crystal Blossom Pendant

May 20, 2021 @ 10:30 am 12:30 pm

Crystal Blossom Pendant

Seed beads, superduos, and ginko beads surround a sparkling crystal rivoli in this fun pendant that works up quickly!

This piece is designed by Vezsuzsi, https://www.etsy.com/shop/beadsbyvezsuzsi/


Technique: Circular peyote/bezeling; circular netting

Difficulty Level: Intermediate 1
If you’ve taken a few beginner classes, are starting to get comfortable with the language of beading and feel ready for the next step, this is the perfect class for you. This project will be just a little more complex than the beginner pieces, but still great for new beaders.

There is no charge to participate in a Bead Circle, however reservations are requested!

Pattern & Materials

This piece is featured in Beadwork Magazine, Dec/Jan 2021 Edition.

You must bring your copy of the magazine with you to this session. If you do not already have a copy of the magazine, we have them available for sale at the shop.

The materials list can be found in the magazine. I followed the designers list closely, however I noticed that Miyuki seed beads cooperated a little better than Toho for this particular project.

We kindly ask that you use beads purchased at our store when in our beading room.


Beadalongs

What is a Beadalong? Well we know that beading at home is a relaxing and enjoyable hobby, there is no doubt about it, but beading in a group is FUN! That’s what many of us have missed most during the pandemic. Beadalongs have become popular online, but we have such a spacious classroom space we wanted to bring you the same experience IRL (in real life!). These sessions will take place during Open Beading on Tuesdays at 10:30am. Here’s how it will work:

  • Laura will pick a project each month that catches her eye, either purchased from a designer’s website or Etsy shop. (We love having the opportunity to support and bring attention to all the talented designers out there!) Anyone wishing to participate will be required to purchase their own copy of the pattern in advance and bring it with them.
  • There is no charge to participate and no reservations required, however attendees should already have experience in bead-weaving and a comfort level with reading patterns, since this is not a class and the chosen projects will not be at a beginner level.
  • Participants can come any or all of the Tuesdays during the month to work on the piece with others, while also working independently at home between sessions. Everyone works at their own pace.

This is a great opportunity to learn and share experiences with other local beaders while tackling a more involved bead project! Can’t join us on Tuesdays? Beadalong on your own schedule from home and share your results with us on Facebook!
