Do you ever find yourself waiting for your special beads to speak about what you should do with them? And then once they do, the resulting design occurs like magic? That’s exactly what happens with textured bead embroidery as you explore color and the application of different stitches and techniques using an eclectic mix of beads and components. Your finished pendant will be a work of art and your new found muse will inspire you to bead beyond jewelry! (Session 1 – Wednesday, 1/16/19 5:00 – 7:30)
