Be prepared to throw caution to the wind, relax, and creatie something truly your own.

Starting with a foundation that has grids for placement, we will audition shat you have on-hand to create something unique and exquisite but, most importantly, something all your design. After deciding on placement, I will show and have written instructions of multiple bead embroidery techniques such as caging a cabochon with peyote and embellishing stitches that give depth and dimension, plus filling stitches.

Please bring several different colors of size 11 Delicas. Usually two different colors will works as this is how I do the peyote caging successfully. Along with assorted shaped beads such as firepolish or Czech pressed shapes, please have a small assortment of size 8, 11, and 15 seed beads. I also suggest to make sure you have at least one focal cabochon or button, pearls, crystals, and anything else you have or want to use. I will have some Delicas, some seed beads, and other assorted materials including some crystal cup chain, foundation, and backing fabric.
