These fun little beaded beads are created using a simple filled netting technique. Thirty-three of the Small Round beads strung together make an awesome, drooled over, necklace. The Large Focal bead can be used as a focal point in many of your projects or worn alone on a simple neckwire. The Flat ring is nice as a toggle ring or as a component in necklaces or brace-lets. You will learn a simple ‘sales knot’ technique to begin each bead which eliminates the presence of a tail thread and makes weaving in your threads a snap.

Students will complete one of each bead in class.
