Using a Maku Studio cabochon, students will learn step-by-step to create a one-of-a-kind piece of bead embroidery. Techniques will include gluing, bezeling a cabachon, working with irregular shapes, embellishing, edging and finishing. Brief instruction will be given on creating a fine spiral rope chain which can be accommodated by the provided pin/pendant finding.

Each kit is one-of-a-kind with components individually selected to compliment the focal piece.

Because kit assembly is quiet labor intensive, kits will not be sold to non-students.

Additional Supplies Needed: Scissors, pliers or gripper for pulling needle through the backing, battery-operated task light ( if needed), magnification (if needed), and a bead mat. Students will need something to cut Fireline - clippers or nippers available in fishing departments work well as do children's Fiskars that you can get from a dollar store.
