Bead and Button classes

This year is full of lovely classes! but first... I'll be bringing these four designs to Bead and Button in June, I can't wait! As class registration is about to commence, here is a little more detail for anyone tempted to join me.

First is the Spinning Wave. This is a multi layered design with a Wave bead on a beaded pendant, the ultimate 'worry bead' as the bead spins on it's axis. Worked in a mix of Albion Stitch and other techniques and finished with a gorgeously chunky Czech Glass spike. The perfect way to explore three dimensional beadwork in easy steps and part of a series of designs based on kinetic structures I can't wait to share.

Nouveau Droplet is one of my all time favourite designs, Peyote stitch and bead stringing, with some dainty layered details. It works up quickly and includes three different beaded beads to explore. It is a great design for students in need of the next steps on from the beginner level, but detailed enough to give experienced beaders new ideas. The class booking form is here:

Country garden, a full blown Albion Stitch bloom and  leaves, full of detail and perfect for a
summer corsage. This design takes a little time to create, but works into a layered flower full of pretty details. The leaves are quick and fun to work, and can be worked flat, gently curled and grouped together to complement the flowers.

Cigar band ring, I made this ring just for fun and was asked for the pattern every time I wore it. This is probably the most comfortable beaded ring, full of colour and detail and a lovely blending of stitch techniques. Perfect for anyone who's mastered the basics of thread tension. We'll be exploring different scales for bracelets and pendants too. The class booking forms are here:

  3. It's a shame that someone goes to Bead and Button and pays BIG bucks to take a class only to find out that six months later they could pay a fraction of the cost for the just the pattern. Highway robbery !!

    1. Hi Beading Grandma, a fair comment. The 'last class' refers to the very last time I teach a class, not to the date of the show. Attendees to the show do indeed pay a premium, it is a very special show.
