st-petersburg-feather-edge-necklace-purple-700wCourse outline: Learn how to do St. Petersburg Chain, a lesser-known but highly versatile bead stitch with instructor Pamela Kearns. With this in-hand beading stitch, you add variations through the edging. You will learn both the single St. Petersburg Chain, the double St. Petersburg Chain. The class will be technique driven and all the materials you need to learn the technique will be provided.

You will then apply the technique to one of several projects that will be available or you may design your own project with Pam’s help. Any materials needed for the projects will be your responsibility to purchase but are readily available at BeadFX. Available projects include a bracelet, two necklaces and a pair of earrings. Samples of each of the projects will be available to see and bead substitutions can be made, where applicable.
