Valentine Star

February 3 @ 10:30 am 12:30 pm

“Valentine Star”

Three-dimensional beaded stars that are stitched using the “warped square” technique have been very popular amongst our local beaders, particularly during the holiday season. But just because the Christmas trees are down, it doesn’t mean we can’t still enjoy making these little cuties! This valentine star seems like just the perfect project for this time of year. If you haven’t learned how to do this technique yet, we think you’ll really enjoy this class.

This piece is designed by Ella Des and is available for purchase on her website:  Ella has generously allowed us to distribute copies of this pattern to participants who attend this class.

Instructor: Laura

Technique: How to make a “warped square” out of peyote and herringbone

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

This policy also applies to registrants using a pre-paid multi-class package to avoid having the class deducted from your total.

Materials & Supplies Needed (approximate)

    • 4 different colors of Delicas (3-5 grams each). The fourth color not shown in photo is so that your star can be a little different on each side.

You’ll also need fireline and a beading needle. An awl & thread burner not required, but are very helpful!

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