Joan Braymen and Dee Edwards will show us how to construct these cute little Friendship Wheels. You can make two and have a pair of earrings or make several and hang on a rope around your neck. You might even want to trade a few with your tablemates at the meeting .You will use a basic netting technique to build the wheels. Joan said she learned this pattern from her Texas bead buddy Sharon Campbell at the January 2016 Texas Bead Retreat. Join us for "Early Bird Beading" beginning at 5 pm. Patterns will be available.
Here is a list of supplies needed to complete a single wheel.
Size 11 seed beads (117 per wheel)
