Learn to make this lovely Star Flower Brooch just in time for Mother’s Day. The Star Flower is made entirely with Czech glass dagger and drop beads and a needle and thread in a variation of Peyote stitch. A small strong gauss magnet glued to the back fastens it on your lapel, purse, shoe, etc. The student will finish a Star Flower in class and the instructor will discuss simple techniques to attach it to a bracelet or beaded ring.
