Learn the basics of bead embroidery to create a unique focal that can be used as a pendant or pin. Select your cabochon (a flat backed stone without a hole) and coordinating beads to frame and highlight the beauty of your stone, and then the fun begins! The first session will include an overview of the process and required stitches, and you will also begin stitching around the cabochon. Your surrounding stitch rows must be complete before the second session, when you will learn finishing techniques and various ways to finish off your piece. (Part 2 of a 2 part class. Part 1 is scheduled for Wednesday, 1/24/18, 1:30 – 4:00)
