Faenza Beaded Beads

December 12, 2020 @ 10:30 am 12:30 pm

“Faenza Beaded Beads”

We are so addicted to beaded beads here at the shop that when our friends at Beadsmith offered this fantastic FREE pattern, it was a no-brainer that it needed to be a regular class! There are no core beads needed for these; there are superduos and miniduos on the inside as well as the outside to give the bead a very firm structure. They work up quick and easy too! You can play with the colorways, either making each beaded bead the same or mixing up the colors, as you can see in the various photos. We even took some and strung them on ball chain to make a simple necklace.

Designed by Nela Kábelová. Pattern provided by Beadsmith. We will distribute copies of the instructions on the day of class.


Instructor: Laura

Technique: Beaded beads

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.

Cost Options

$15 Single class price

$10 Multi-class package price
Multi-class packages are $80 for 8 classes. Packages are good for a 6-month period, starting from the date of first use. Packages can be used on most of the classes offered, however specialty and guest instructor classes regularly priced higher than $15 do not qualify.

$0 Your first class is free!
This class qualifies for our promotion, so if this is your first time joining us in the beading room, be sure to let us know when you register and we’ll waive the fee.

Cancellation Policy:  Cancellations must be submitted a minimum of 2 business days prior to the event in order to receive credit that can be used towards another class or merchandise. This policy also applies to registrants using a pre-paid multi-class package to avoid having the class deducted from your total. (Please note that due to the limited staffing we have at this time, we will not be able to do reminder calls before all classes, so be sure to put your dates on your calendar.)
