Peacock Pearl Box with visiting instructor Jean Power

June 2, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


Course outline: Learn how to use geometric beading techniques to create a striking vessel that stands on its own beaded feet. The lid has a large crystal centrepiece and pearl highlights incorporated into the beadwork. The class will cover all the techniques needed to make the vessel as well as how to bead variations to make a unique piece of beadwork.

Skill level: Intermediate

Prerequisite: Must be comfortable using peyote stitch

Technique: Peyote

Bring to class: It is recommended that you place an on-line order 2 – 3 weeks in advance of the class for your supplies. You may request pick-up and payment at the time of the class (choose the call back payment option.)
