Sparkle Bands

Recurring event see all

October 9, 2021 @ 10:30 am 12:30 pm

Sparkle Bands

These bracelets are loaded with sparkle and have a wide range of style options. From the different widths, to the endless color selections, you’re sure to find one (or more!) that you love. In this class you’ll learn how to stitch a base of multi-row right-angle weave stitch using 11/0 seed beads, then embellish with 4mm beads. If you haven’t tackled this stitch yet, this is a great opportunity to master this commonly used technique. Prior experience with single-row right-angle weave is very helpful.

Tutorial written by Laura

Instructor: Laura

Technique: Multi-row right-angle-weave

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.
