Fusion Ring and Bracelet with visiting instructor Nancy Cain

March 25 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Cdn $155.00

Course outline: This watch style piece is built from two separate components designed a year apart that have been fused together. The key is keeping all of your bead bits in a bowl for future use! The individual components are engineered with Peyote stitch and built in stages allowing the underside to have a fun peek-a-boo of embellishment. It is created from the outside-in and the inside-out alternately using the working and tail threads. You can make a bangle bracelet just using the square Puffy Links or a ring of just the center component.
