Skill level: Intermediate
Cost $100 + materials
Materials are not included in class price
A little sparkle, a little flash and you have a flame! It’s time to Play with Fire! Create a substantial focal pendant with one of my favorite things, a large Swarovski crystal!
First work a beaded bezel to set your crystal, embellish the bezel and set the crystal bezel inside of an embellished frame of CRAW. Suspend your pendant from an equally elaborate smaller crystal. Hang your pendant treasure from a circle bail and toggle system and suspend from an embellished necklace strap. You have the option on the length of the necklace strap, leave it short or make it long.
This is an intermediate to advanced beading project. You must be proficient in circular peyote with step ups and with Cubic Right Angle Weave. You will also be embellishing the peyote and CRAW with additional beads by stitching in the ditch. Also, you may achieve the look of CRAW using a flat Right Angle Weave and zip it closed. A primer for CRAW (Cubic Right Angle Weave) may be found on youtube.com. Search for Heather Collins and look for her video: How to bead - Basic Cubic Right Angle Weave video Tutorial
