Triangular Peyote Box with Lid

Instructor: Pamela Kearns

Class outline: So you love to do flat peyote and maybe even have tried triangular peyote! What next? How about creating a small box with a lid? Students will learn how to do triangular peyote to create a box base. Then - the fun part - you'll learn how to start a triangle with a bead in the centre and work out from there! The box will be done using size 10 delica beads. A gumdrop bead is worked into the lid. Students will provide their own size 10 delica beads in two or more colours; the kit fee will include written instructions and a gumdrop bead (many colours to choose from!) If you want to try triangular peyote before you come, check out the Introduction to Geometric Beading: Triangles class on Thursday, September 15.

About Pamela Kearns

Although a seed beader at heart, Pam has been branching out into new techniques and combining the best of all worlds into her creations. She sells her work and peyote patterns in stores, shows and through Etsy. She had her first project published in the May/June 2013 issue of Beadwork. Pam taught at the 2014, 2015, 2016 Bead and Button Shows in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and has been accepted to teach five classes at the 2017 Bead and Button Show.

A problem solver, Pam thoroughly enjoys teaching and inspiring students to think beyond basic techniques encouraging students to stamp their own vision on projects.

As a new endeavour in her own teaching career (and fellow 'Lefty'), Pam has started to include 'Lefty-Alerts' within her class instructions ensuring that everyone is able to complete the techniques easily.
