“Sparkling Trellis Necklace”
August 21, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm$9
“Sparkling Trellis Necklace“
In the June edition of Bead & Button magazine we were introduced to Isabella Lam’s “Cinch Stitch” with her Radiance Necklace. It was a rather time consuming process to stitch with the primary bead being a size 15/0, so we were happy to see her new “Sparkling Trellis Necklace” in the August edition where she now uses size 11/0 as her main bead, with size 8/0 accent beads. The finished piece looks quite different from her first as well since it’s a lariat style with a crystal connector in the middle and a decorative dangle. We even added one of our metal leaves as an extra accent to give it a tropical, Florida flair!

What is a Bead Circle?
Beading at home is a relaxing and enjoyable hobby, there is no doubt about it, but beading as a group is FUN! Several times a month we’ll pick a project, grab our magazines and gather in the beading room at Laura’s. The projects we choose do require some knowledge of bead-weaving and a comfort level with reading patterns since beaders will be working more independently than in a class setting, however one of our staff (also known as your “Beadvisor”) is in the beading room during the session to help if you have any questions along the way. Your Beadvisor will also have made the selected piece ahead of time so that you can see what it looks like completed and will discuss her experience in making it, along with providing suggestions, tips and ideas for adaptations.
