Going to the Ball

February 4, 2021 @ 10:30 am 12:30 pm

“Going to the Ball”

This elegant bracelet pattern is stitched by bezeling a series of rivolis, adding embellishments, then attaching them together. You can also easily use the same pattern to make earrings. The sparkle on this one is amazing! Although Marcia herself is not available to teach at this time, she has allowed our own Judy (who stitched the beautiful sample shown) to teach in her absence.

This piece is designed by Marcia Balonis and is available for purchase on her Etsy site “Baubles by Balonis.” Marcia has generously allowed us to distribute copies of this pattern to participants who attend this class.


Instructor: Judy

Technique: Circular peyote

Difficulty Level: Intermediate 2
This piece is suitable for beaders who are comfortable with reading bead patterns and know many of the common stitches and terminology
