The only precise bead technique on this little girl is the peyote. Peyote beading is one of my favorites and once you learn the principles of this technique you will love it. Those of you who already know this technique will still find making this project fun and rewarding.
She can be made into a necklace that will give you rave compliments when worn, and she does have a counter-balance so she doesn’t pull on your neck. Or, make her for a fan pull, or a pull for a chain pull lamp, or to catch the light in a window, or…..? Many possibilities.
In the class along with written and illustrated instructions are video’s showing in detail the various techniques. How to wire and fill with stuffing the arms so they can be moved; drawing & coloring a tiny face; peyote beadwork; creating a lacy effect with beaded picot’s; straight and kinky fringe for the tassel; spikes and fringe for her hair; and a beaded chain for the necklace or hanger.
Come join in this truly fun class.
