|This bracelet has just the right touch of sparkle to brighten up any outfit. In this class you will learn to encase a Rivoli with peyote stitch, but with a little different twist that will make your Rivoli look more like a rounded square than round. Then you will encase a Chaton with netting with a slight twist that will also make the chaton appear slightly squared off. You won't be able to make just one! We took this picture to highlight the hidden beauty of the netting at the backs of the Rivolis. This is an intermediate class and requires knowledge of peyote. Knowledge of netting is good but not necessary. Created and taught by Carmelina Calabrese. This class will run 2-4 hours. $60 plus materials.|
|Another EDGAR LOPEZ original design! Inspired by Russian art, the Olya Necklace can also be modified into a pendant or earrings. Appropriate for Intermediate/Advanced level bead weavers.
